Schools to send students to compete in Math Relays

About 600 high school students from 50 different schools will compete in the 36th annual Kansas High School Math Relays at Fort Hays State University from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 13, in the Memorial Union.

Students will compete in a series of six tests: algebra, geometry, number sense, applications, trigonometry and calculations with calculators.

Each test has a 20-minute time limit. Participants can enter individually or in teams of three. Teams perform in a relay format, where each member will individually work on the paper for one-third of the time before handing it to a teammate.

The top three places for the individual and team categories for each grade and subject will receive an award. The top three schools with the most total points overall will also win awards. The school awards will be noted in their Kansas State High School Activities Association classification. Divisions are marked as 1A, 2A to 3A, and 4A to 6A.
