The district would like to recognize its high school students who participated in the national MathCON competition. MathCON is a nonprofit organization that hosts a nationally acclaimed student math competition each year. Nearly 50,000 students from across the nation in grades 5-12 compete in two rounds. The first round is a 45-question exam administered online, and then roughly 1 percent nationally of those competitors are invited to compete in the finals held May 5 in Chicago.
The MathCON competition questions include several mathematical disciplines including algebra, geometry, measurement, data analysis, number systems, and pre-calculus.
Liberty High School is proud to boast its students’ impressive results:
- John Nolan scored in the 93rd percentile;
- Michael Cohen scored in the 80th percentile; and
- the following members received honorable mentions: Brooke Nichols, Sarah Kleinberger, Dylan Mann, Benjamin Quackenbush, and Paul Symanski.
