Marceline Sails To CMU Math-Science Title
Mathematics, science, and paper airplanes were the subject matter at the annual Harold Momberg High School Math and Science Competition hosted by Central Methodist University this past Thursday (Nov. 1).
The three-member Marceline High School team of Tucker Dunham, Austin Moudy and Whitney Warner garnered first place honors, according to Dr. James "Tiger" Gordon of CMU, coordinator of the competition. Meagan Wyatt is the Marceline teacher.
Second place went to the New Franklin High School team of Emily Hendrix, Sara Montgomery and Kalani Pihana, taught by Cana Conrow and Jen Stutzer. Centralia High School students Caleb Liegey, Emily Million and Kaity Rolfson earned third place; Tonya Schmidt is their teacher.
"It is always our great pleasure to have such talented students on our campus," said Gordon, professor of chemistry and CMU division chair. "It is a real joy to get to spend some time with them and their teachers. Hopefully, we stretch their minds in math and science."
A total of 21 teams and 61 students representing 11 regional high schools took part in the event, Gordon noted. Dr. Jerry Priddy, CMU professor of mathematics, helps to coordinate the contest.
Competition was divided into two categories: Knowledge,involving questions on chemistry, biology, physics, algebra and trigonometry; and Performance, this year featuring a paper airplane contest.
