Fort Hays State University’s Department of Mathematics will host the 41st annual Math Relays on Thursday, Nov. 14.
Students in grades nine through 12 will compete in six tests throughout the day. The six tests are number sense, trigonometry, algebra, geometry, applications, and calculations with calculators.
Tests can be completed by individual students or by teams of three.
45 schools ranging in size from 1A to 6A are expected to bring around 600 students to compete.
Awards will be presented at the end of the day. All students take the same tests, but when it comes to scoring they are only scored with students in the same grade. Individual and team winners are recognized in each grade level for each test.
Along with individual awards, each school receives points based on how their students perform. The three schools in each classification with the most points earn plaques.
“The Math and Computer Science departments would like to thank the FHSU community for their continued support of this event,” said Dr. Bill Weber, assistant professor of mathematics.
“It is a wonderful opportunity for FHSU to make a positive impression on these prospective high school students who often cite Math Relays as one of the experiences which helped them decide to attend FHSU post-graduation.”
