Math students from Tchefuncte Middle School in Mandeville participated in monthly competitions with students from across the United States through the Continental Mathematics League. In each challenge, the students had 30 minutes to solve six complex, higher-level problems.
Telemachus Kilpatrick, a two-year winner, said, “CML has been a really awesome experience. It has taught me much about math, problem-solving strategies and practices, and was a great and competitive way for me to grow in critical-thinking skills. It taught us ways of math and real life, and I feel like a smarter mathematician.”
