MathCounts Trophies

Pictured from left to right are Katherine Simmers, Ben Rowley, Coach Patricia Coy, Mason Calico, and Jack Wei as they are congratulated by Joe Calantoni of the Naval Research Laboratory at Stennis Space Center. Dr. Calantoni served as host of the final round and the award ceremony.

MathCounts Team Wins Denson Cup

Mathematics students from Boyet Junior High and Little Oak Middle schools in Slidell won several awards at the MathCounts competition held recently at the University of New Orleans.  The Boyet team won the Denson Cup, awarded each year to the first-place team at the New Orleans chapter competition, as well as an opportunity to take part in the state competition in Pineville on March 23. 

Ben Rowley and Mason Calico of Boyet and Anna Yue of Little Oak placed in the top ten individuals, qualifying them to compete in the countdown round, a lightning elimination round conducted live before the assembled students parents, and sponsors.  Rowley took the third-place trophy in the countdown round.

MathCounts is a national middle school mathematics competition, in which students work individually and on four-member teams to solve challenging written problems including geometry, number theory, combinatorics, and algebra, all leading to a national competition in May. The New Orleans competition at UNO brought together students from 18 metro-area private and public schools.  

Boyet was represented by team members Mason Calico, Ben Rowley,  Katherine Simmers, and Jack Wei, and alternates Ryan Blanchard, Preston Fong, Elizabeth Hebert, and Yohane Ngodock.  Little Oak was represented by team members Matthew Bratton, Derek Guo, Nathan Ngo, and Anna Yue, and alternates Cort Blackwell and A.J. Mahnke. 

The teams were selected in a school-level competition from a group of junior high and sixth grade students who have devoted two hours a week before and after school since September to improve their math skills.

The Boyet and Little Oak MathCounts students had earlier participated in the American Mathematics Contest (AMC) 8 in November.   The AMC 8 is designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem solving skills, with a written examination so students can apply concepts taught at the junior high level to problems that cover a wide range of applications.

The AMC 8 is offered nationally for students up to 8th grade, and Boyet’s Ben Rowley and Little Oak’s Anna Yue won the Honor Roll distinction for placing in the top five percent of competitors nationally. Yue also placed on the Achievement Roll for high-achieving students up to 6th grade.

Boyet Junior High gifted math teacher Patricia Coy coaches the Boyet team, and Sherryle Mathis of Boyet coaches the Little Oak students.  They were assisted this year by volunteers David Fabre and Rodney Busby, and by Northshore High School students Aretha Guo and former Louisiana national team member Joshua Xu. 

The four Boyet students are now preparing for the state competition, which will be more challenging.
