22nd annual Indiana Academic M.A.T.H. Bowl


Fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders from the Seymour area competed in the 22nd annual Math Academic Teams for Hoosiers competition Feb. 22 at Seymour-Redding Elementary School.

Nine teams with up to 20 students from each team participated in the event. Across the state, 577 teams made up of nearly 8,000 students competed.

The math competition is a team concept with no individual winners. Each of the four rounds consists of three team members working on eight problems while competing against teams from other schools.

Each problem is graded immediately, and an individual scoring chart maintains a running team score as the evening progresses.
