Area schools are getting prepared for the state math meet in March. Sturgeon Bay High School won the Packerland Conference for its 19th consecutive year earlier this month with an undefeated season and a 100 point total. Sturgeon Bay math teacher and Coach Cliff Wind says the upcoming state competition is held at each respective school and submitted for scoring. He says the state format is different from the conference meets and even more challenging.
Wind adds that students are allowed to use calculators for the state test, but the problems are much more difficult with geometry and algebra questions. The deadline for schools registering for the state math meet was last Friday, and the competitions are held the week of March 9th through the 13th.
