The Carol Edwards Excellence in Mathematics Junior High Competition is an exciting experience for 7th and 8th grade students that was created by the CGCC Mathematics Division. The intent of the event is to support the efforts of our local community schools in motivating and encouraging today's youth to be successful in mathematics. It is the hope of the CGCC Mathematics Division to not only help students improve their mathematical skills but also their attitudes toward math. The competition creates a fun environment in which the students can compete alongside their classmates as well as meet and compete against other youth from the East Valley.
The competition consists of three different contests: individual, team, and collaborative. For each contest there are two grade divisions: 7th and 8th grade.
The individual contest consists of students answering multiple choice questions. Each school is allowed to bring a maximum of ten students per grade level for the individual competition. Awards are given to the five students from each grade level with the highest scores.
The team for each school and each grade consists of the four students with the highest scores on the individual contest. Team awards are given to the top three teams at each grade level.
The collaborative contest is a problem solving/writing activity. Each school may select an additional four students to compete as a team. They work together to come up with a single solution. Collaborative awards are given to the top two teams at each grade level.
Students from Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Tempe, Higley, Scottsdale, Apache Junction, Queen Creek, Cornville, and Cottonwood have participated. The CGCC Mathematics Division welcomes your school or individual student to compete!
