In it's 30th year the Texas A&M University High School Math Contest takes place bringing hundreds of area high school students together for a competition featuring a series of team and individual competitions and exams in subjects ranging from Algebra I through Calculus.
BIS Houston Year 13 Academy students Yuanxi, Authencia, Nirav, Timur & Jasmine entered the Power Team Category and collaborated on open-ended problems, which allow the team to devise appropriate examples, make conjectures, and prove (or attempt to prove) their conjectures.
Team participants are not allowed to consult with anyone but their team mates. Participants are not allowed to look on the web for any information regarding the power team exam, nor are they allowed to search books or other reference materials.
Impressively our achievers took FIRST Place in the Power Team Exam Category at the Texas A&M University 30th High School Mathematics Contest. This is a wonderful achievement, our students love of maths and living their learning is contagious!
