Mathletes Round 1 Postponed…again

This is a hard call, but I think in the interest of the safety of 200+ kids, teachers, and parents we should cancel tomorrow’s competition. I’ve watched all the local forecasts and looked at many online, and it appears that the heaviest snow will be reaching Little Rock at the exact time we should be ending the competition. I think it will be better for all involved if we are at our schools, if we have to dismiss early.
We will still have the competition. As I wrote in my last email, we will plan on doing this Tuesday. I’ll send the test via email to you that morning. It will be your job to administer the test (giving students 20 minutes per half to compete) and of course this will be on the honor system. I would reschedule again with UALR, but they are all booked at this point.

Round One Update

Weil it’s the same song just the second verse this week! :)
If we are in school tomorrow without any type of delays, we will have the Mathletes competition as planned. I’ve been in contact with UALR and they are expecting us if school is in session. If school is delayed at all, we will not have the competition tomorrow. Hopefully, we will be in session and things will go off without a hitch.
If the competition is cancelled tomorrow, we have a plan. Stay tuned and I will update with another post if the competition is cancelled.

Round 1 Postponed Until Next Week

The Mathletes Challenge Round One is postponed due to inclement weather. We will start the competition next Wednesday (2/25) at its regularly scheduled time. This year, we will only have two rounds (Round 1 and the Championship). We will narrow the field down to our top ten teams next week. Thanks for understanding and I look forward to seeing you then!

The following information is for the team coordinators. The answer document and Scantron sheets we used to grade the tests will be put in tomorrow’s school mail. There was a question about a scoring change on some of the teams who participated in the Sudden Death round. The total scores for both rounds, one and two, did not change. In order to quickly present the winners, I typed the names of the teams in order of their places and did not change the round one and two scores with the names. The overall score remained the same. What you see above are the actual scores from each round and the sudden death. I checked each test and everything is correct.

Thank you again for your participation this year. I look forward to even more teams competing next year when we celebrate our 10th anniversary! Have a great Spring Break!
