Math Club competes at Cal state sponsored competition
Math club placed second at the Cal State University Long Beach Math Day competition on Saturday, March 14.
This was a state level competition open to all the public high schools in southern California. The winning teams move on to a college competition called the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition.
“We weren’t expecting second place, so we were all surprised and excited,” senior Kevin Yang said. “The benefits of competing and learning about math is that we can find all the different ways to solve a math problem. It also inspires us to always seek for other ways to solve any issues in life. Math competitions are like inspirations. It teaches us not to attack a problem in just one perspective.”
