MathCON Update

RANDOLPH PUBLIC SCHOOLS (RPS) PROUDLY ANNOUNCES

FIVE (5) OF ITS STUDENTS WILL BE ATTENDING THE MATHCON FINALS IN CHICAGO ON APRIL 27th

We are proud to announce that our students have done extremely well in MathCON. In February, our 5th – 12th grade students participated in the MathCON online competition. MathCON gives students the opportunity to compete against other students (in their own grades) across the nation!

Fifty-thousand (50,000) students from 400 schools participated in the online MathCON competition, including seven of our students from Randolph Community Middle School (RCMS), Randolph High School (RHS), and the Young ES. Only 900 of the most qualified students advance on to the national finals, which consist of a 100-minute timed test comprising of 40 multiple-choice questions and student constructed responses covering a range of mathematical disciplines.

MathCON’s vision is to build a collaborative mathematics community for students and educators to support, advocate for, and influence STEM education in the U.S. to pave the way for the 21st Century generation of problem-solvers.
