Moody’s Mega Math Challenge Review

Words: Caroline Chu

On Saturday, February 25, two Centennial teams competed in Moody’s Mega Math Challenge. This year’s problem required students to create a model that would determine the overall risk posed to specific national parks as a result of climate change.

Senior Suzie Byun led Mr. Watson’s team, and senior Sahil Saini headed Mr. Kennedy’s team. The two teams were not competitive with each other, and even shared food during lunch. Saini said the competitors were “happy campers.”

The competition, which focuses on real-life modeling, is described by Byun as “a different type of approach to math.”

Though the real-life application area of mathematics was not something most competitors were used to, Byun still hopes both teams finished well.

The competition results will be announced in April.
