High school students succeed at MathCON

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.
