High school students from across Kansas will compete in Fort Hays State University’s Math Relays on Thursday, Nov. 10.
Competition will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Memorial Union and will continue until 12:30 p.m. Awards will be handed out throughout the day.
About 600 students from 45 high schools will compete this year, according to Bill Weber, instructor of mathematics and computer sciences at FHSU. Students will take a series of tests over algebra, geometry, number sense, applications, trigonometry and calculations with calculators.
Students can take the tests as individuals or they can take them as a team. Teams have three students, with each student working for one-third of the time.
Awards will be presented to the top three places in the individual and team categories for each grade level and in each test. The top three schools overall will also get awards based on the points they earn in their Kansas State High School Activities Association classification. Divisions are 1A; 2A to 3A; and 4A to 6A.
