On Saturday, November 25, 2017, three King’s-Edgehill School Math League teams visited Acadia University to compete in the first contest of the year. After a round of ten team questions and the pairs relay, and with only the individual relay remaining, our Math League Team of Phoebe Yuen, Yufei (Jessica) Wu and Jiashu (Jay) Liu finished it first; another of our Math League Teams of Qianhui (Venus) Hong, Ziyue (Shell) Jiang, Hsiao-Yu (Mia) Chen and Yue (Rebecca) Yu finished it third.
Congratulations, mathletes, and don’t forget we have practices on Tuesday evenings led by Captain Linxuan (Skyler) Li, and teachers Mr. Chris MacLean and Ms. Michelle Moon.
We hope to see interested mathletes at our next practices!
