This year’s Team Math Contest on Dec. 5 at both Rappahannock Community College campuses drew 56 area students. The two- or three-person teams came from Colonial Beach, Essex, King George, Mathews, Northumberland, Rappahannock (Richmond County), Washington and Lee (Westmoreland County), and West Point high schools; the Glenns and Warsaw sites of the Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School; and the private schools of Christchurch (Middlesex) and St. Margaret’s (Essex).

The contest, organized by RCC mathematics instructor Nicolle Lee, consisted of a number of highly-challenging questions testing several branches of mathematics—geometry, algebra, and higher levels. Each team worked together to solve the problems under the supervision of a proctor, who also recorded the time spent for the entire test.

The winning teams were Blake Atwell, Nick Choppa and Robbie Hu of Christchurch School; Melissa Baltrusaitis, William Wei-Xi Wang Price and Cody Voight of the Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School at Glenns, and Hannah Gill, James Latane and Abigail Wallace of the Governor’s School at Warsaw; Joel Davis, Morgan Hudgins and Evan Leyba of Mathews High; and Sujin An, Yunjia Ge and Yichia Houng of St. Margaret’s. Each winner received a commemorative medallion, and certificates of participation will be mailed to all students who attended.
