The 47th Annual West River Math Contest, originally scheduled for April 5th but postponed due to the blizzard that weekend, has been rescheduled for this Saturday, April 26th, on the South Dakota Tech campus. The event will begin with a general meeting at 9: 30 a. m. in the Surbeck Center, followed by testing sessions from 10: 00 a. m. to 11: 30 a. m. The awards ceremony will be held at 1: 00 p. m. in Room 252 of the Electrical Engineering/ Physics Building.
The schools are divided into two classes based on enrollment. Students compete in five contest divisions, which are separated according to subject matter and include Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Advanced Math and Masters. Members of South Dakota Tech’s Mathematics and Computer Science Department will prepare and score the tests.
The top five students in each division will be awarded medals and the overall winner in each division will receive a trophy. In addition, the top school in each class will receive a new award in honor of Ralph Doutt, a former SDSM& T mathematics professor.
