MATH TEAM | HS
The Northern Illinois Big 12 Mathematics contest is held once each year for our Gifted Math students in December at North Central College. The contest is composed of individual written competitions as well as team competitions in both a large and small school division. The conference math coaches for each of the written competitions select topics such as linear equations, geometry of a right triangle, trigonometric applications, etc. There are three topics chosen for each grade level, freshmen through seniors, with four students testing in each topic. Each written test consists of four questions with a time limit of twenty minutes. The team competitions consist of a calculator team and two eight- person teams, freshman-sophomore and junior -senior. These tests are taken as a group, twenty questions in twenty minutes. First place medallions and second/third place ribbons are presented to the students; a plaque is awarded to each first place school.
