Waubonsee Students Compete in Student Math League Contest

Eighty-eight students at Waubonsee Community College contributed their insights and reasoning to the college’s entry into the opening round of the Student Mathematics League Competition, boosting the college’s performance in the national competition.

Jacqueline Mathieu, of Elburn, placed first among Waubonsee students during the competition, held Nov. 5, followed by fellow students Dillon Martenson, of Shabbona; Robert Wenzel, of Aurora; Lydia Krauz, of Montgomery; and Mariela Galvez, of Oswego.

The event was held as part of the competition organized annually by the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges.

The scores of Waubonsee’s Top 5 finishers were then submitted to the AMATYC to calculate Waubonsee’s team score.

Final scores and placement will be determined after results from the second round of the Student Mathematics League Competition in April are added to the first round scores.

All students who competed in the first round are invited to participate in the second round, as well.

The Waubonsee competition was organized through Waubonsee’s Division of Mathematics and Sciences by Associate Professor of Mathematics Mark Crawford and Mathematics Instructor Chris Cunningham.
