A group of mathematical prodigies from Shuswap Middle School claimed the top prize in a math competition hosted by Okanagan College in Kelowna.
Math Challengers is an enrichment, coaching and competition program that promotes mathematics achievement among students, hosting competitions to encourage students to focus on difficult math skills in pursuit of prizes.
The Shuswap Middle School team placed first in the Kelowna competition, which hosted teams from several schools in the Okanagan and surrounding regions. The teams from the regional tournaments around the province then advance to the Math Challengers provincial finals in March, where the B.C. school team and the individual champions are crowned.
