On Tuesday, October 18th, Wheatley students competed in the first New York Math League (NYML) contest of the 2016 school year. We had over 100 students from Wheatley turn out for this contest. The contest consists of 6 questions that cover a variety of different mathematical skills and problem solving techniques.
Wheatley’s top scorer was Brandon Zhu, a 10th grade student, with a perfect 6 out of 6! The top 5 scorers for each contest get reported to the Math League and the top scorer from each school receives recognition at the end of the school year.
This contest is a mathematically enriching activity offered to students school-wide one Tuesday per month after school. We encourage all students who want to challenge themselves to think outside of the box to participate in this contest.
