On February 14 the SeaLu Math Team went to Rainier Christian High School to compete with the home school, Cascade Christian, and Christian Faith High School in a math contest.
Each school had a Junior/Senior team and a Freshman/Sophomore team. Each team competed in two rounds of testing: Round 1 consisted of 15 problems to be answered in 30 minutes without calculators, Round 2 consisted of 15 problems (super hard!) to be answered in 45 minutes using calculators.
The SeaLu Freshman/Sophomore team (Hannie Nguyen, Daniel Bolding, and Emily Nguyen) won Round 1 and tied for 2 nd in Round 2. Our 3-person team successfully competed with other Freshman/Sophomore teams that all had 4 persons on their team.
The SeaLu Junior/Senior team (Katniss Liang, Sam Zhou, Ben Comer, and Smith Nguyen) tied for 1 st place in Round 1 and then won Round 2. After these two rounds of testing, it was clear which school had the dominant math teams.
All the SeaLu students at the contest did a great job! We are very proud of them!
