Math Team

The South Math Team is a member of the Minnesota State High School Mathematics League.  Students from every program can participate.  Like every ‘sports’ activity, it is good to have students begin as freshman and practice so that junior and senior years they can be scorers on the team.  Students in Math League attend five meets where they compete in events that roughly follow the mathematics curriculum.  Those not selected for the team can still participate and accumulate points toward individual scoring honors.  Each team is in a division and the top teams and individuals are recognized at an awards ceremony.  They are invited to the state tournament and on the basis of their performance over the year and on other national tests, 30 students are picked for Minnesota’s All-Star Teams.  These are sent to the national tournament.  This activity is also an excellent way to meet other students who enjoy math and to sharpen both math and math testing skills.
