Mathletes from the Meadowbrook School are celebrating after a big win on Feb. 2, in a competition among 27 local middle schools.
The Metrowest Mathcounts competition was held at the Meadowbrook School, and the host school came away as the big winner of the day, with the top team overall as well as the individual student with the highest score, 7th grader Matthew Lipman.
All of the competitors completed three rounds of competition math problems, including both individual problem sets and a group-based problem set. Lipman earned the highest score of the nearly 200 students in attendance, and went on to win the Countdown round in the afternoon.
Meadowbrook’s four-person team now moves on to the Mathcounts State Competition on March 9, where it will compete to represent the state of Massachusetts in the national competition this year. The national competition will be held in Washington D.C.
“We are incredibly proud of all of our math team representatives, who have given so much of their time to practice and prepare for this event," said Evan Iwerks, one of the Meadowbrook math coaches. "We couldn’t ask for anything more of our amazing and talented mathletes.”
Iwerks, who coached the team along with colleagues Alifiyah Ghadiali, David Canfield and Hambisa Goso, is now working with the team to prepare for the state tournament.
