Raytown High Students enter Math Scholarship Contest

raytown_schoolsA team of five Raytown High School students competed in Moody’s Mega Math Challenge, a scholarship competition that requires students to solve timely, real-world issues using applied mathematics.

Raytown High’s team consisted of Seniors Christopher Anderson and Aaron Lemmermann; Juniors Josh Bedsworth, Tristen Caudle, and Truman Steen; and team sponsor Nick Martin, Raytown High math teacher. 

Teams were given 14 hours to study the issue, gather data, state assumptions, and devise mathematical models before reporting their results in the form of a solution paper.  Competing teams did not know the problem in advance.

For Raytown’s project, the students developed a lunch plan for a school if the weekly budget was increased by $1 per student.  The team researched the issue, collected data, and presented their findings in a 12 page solution paper.  The team used problem solving skills and incorporated knowledge from Algebra 1 to Calculus in their solution.

According to a press release from the foundation, “six finalist teams, which will be announced April 7, will present their solutions to a panel of judges in New York City on April 28. Winning teams will be awarded shares of $125,000 by The Moody’s Foundation.”

A total of 1,421 teams made up of 6,412 high school students participated. 

The annual competition is organized by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and is sponsored by The Moody’s Foundation.
