High school mathletes prepare at WVU, compete nationally

High School Mathletes

Nineteen of the top performing high school math students from across the state traveled to WVU to prepare for the American Regions Mathematics League national math competition that was held on June 1 at Penn State University.

From May 29 to 31, students explored various areas of competition math while attending sessions led by faculty from the School of Mathematical and Data Sciences, including Krista Bresock, Cody Hood, Clark Metz, Gabe Tapia and Galyna Voitiuk.

The students also had the chance to explore University facilities while staying in Honors Hall.

At Penn State, they competed against 113 teams and more than 2,000 students from across the United States and Canada. The West Virginia National Math Team finished 34th in its division.

Many of these high school students expressed an interest in pursuing degrees in mathematics, engineering and data science at WVU, presenting yet another great opportunity for these students and the state.
