Students Participate in Math Contest

submitted by

Nine Augsburg students majoring in Mathematics, Computer Science, Data Science and Physics competed in the 25th annual North Central Section Mathematical Association of America Heuer Memorial Team Contest. Kodjo Agboyibo, Phoebe Alva Rosa, Ariana Beeby, Krystal Bollinger, Max Figura, Sean Gaffaney, Jimmy Hemera, Kebba Janneh, and Yuva Gottimukala Suresh formed three teams that wrestled with ten challenging mathematics problems from a wide range of mathematical fields using only whiteboards, markers, paper and pencil, and three hours on a Saturday morning! Thanks to Unbounded Math Club and their advisor Rich Flint for nourishing the competitors with breakfast snacks and lunch pizza. If you would like to test mathematical skills, old problems (and solutions!) can be found at
