Math Madness!

Baldwin High School students have recently begun competing in Math Madness which is a national, virtual, math competition.

Each week, Baldwin competes against another high school from across the country in a 30 minute, round robin format consisting of 7 or 8 problems that increase in difficulty.

The top 5 scores from the team are averaged to determine the winners for each week and ultimately for seeding in the Championship brackets.

Championships begin the week of November 10 and are single elimination format.

In the first week of competition last week, BHS went up against Benilde-St. Margaret’s School from St. Louis Park, MN and lost in a very close finish.

On this particular morning the Highlanders defeated Crystal Springs Uplands School from Hillsborough CA.
