SPRINGVILLE-GRIFFITH INSTITUTE, GENESEE VALLEY EARN TOP HONORS AT MATHEMATICS COMPETITION

SPRINGVILLE-GRIFFITH INSTITUTE, GENESEE VALLEY EARN TOP HONORS AT MATHEMATICS COMPETITION

BRADFORD, Pa. – Teams from Springville-Griffith Institute High School and Genesee Valley Central High School took top honors at the 11th annual Mathematics Competition for High Schools held at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

The competition is organized each year by the mathematics departments of Pitt-Bradford and the Jamestown (N.Y.) Community College Cattaraugus Campus.

Eighty-two students from nine area high schools in Pennsylvania and New York took part in the competition. The students took a two-hour math examination comprised of 60 percent algebra, 15 percent geometry and the remaining percentage addressing other topics normally covered in the high school mathematics curriculum. Students were not allowed to use any supplementary materials such as calculators, tables or slide rules.

Trophies were presented to the two individuals and two teams with the highest scores in both Division I, schools with enrollment exceeding 500 (Springville-Griffith), and Division II, schools with fewer than 500 students (Genesee Valley).

Brock Mapes, a student at Genesee Valley, was the overall winner, receiving a trophy and a $1,500 scholarship to Pitt-Bradford. The individual winner of Division I was Lauren Robel from Springville-Griffith, who also received a trophy and a $1,500 scholarship.

Second place team winners were Bradford Area High School, Division I, and Allegany-Limestone Central High School, Division II. Individual second place winners were Katie Peterson of Springville Griffith, Division I, and C.J. Markum of Cameron County High School, Division II.

“The purpose of the competition is to give students a chance to meet talented mathematics students from other schools and to give them an opportunity to be rewarded for their achievements in mathematics,” said Marius Buliga, associate professor of mathematics at Pitt-Bradford who organized this year’s competition.
