Mu Alpha Theta
October 1st 2009
Osborne is having a homecoming parade and all the clubs need to fit on the field. There is one problem though. Mu Alpha Theta and the Key Club have to divide up a rectangular area whose width is 5x2 + 20x + 10 and whose length is x3 + 2x2 + 4x +20 into two equal parts. What is the area Mu Alpha Theta would get if x=3?
The 2009-2010 Mu Alpha Log 1 Contest will be a pen and paper format and will again be run by the Mount Rainier High School Math Team, MRHS. Information about the contest is at their website: http://log1.wamath.net. Teachers will go here to register their school for the competition after October 1, 2009.
The 2009-2010 contest will consist of three testing rounds. The first round will include two Topic Tests. Students may either take the Logs/Exponents Test or the Probability Test.
Round 1 material will be available for download on December 1, 2009. The test is to be downloaded, administered and test scores uploaded by December 17, 2009.
Round 2 material will be available for download on January 16, 2010. The test is to be downloaded, administered and test scores uploaded by February 7, 2010.
Round 3 material will be available for download on March 1, 2010. The test is to be downloaded, administered and test scores uploaded by March 17, 2010.
Again this year, Mu Alpha Theta will offer a Convention Grant to the top school in each region! A Convention Grant provides up to $3000 for three free registrations to the National Convention in Washington, DC in July, with the remaining funds available for another registration or transportation reimbursement. The National Office will also provide some TI 89, TI Nspire Calculators, and copies of the Computer Algebra System, Mathematica, as prizes to be given at random to participants that take all three tests.
MRHS shall post Round 1 and Round 2 interim results after each round to their website and should have final award recipient information to Mu Alpha Theta by April 15, 2009.
Students will select a topic that is an extension of course work or a topic of interest to a high school student. He/she will investigate the topic mathematically and using a method of choice will present it to Mu Alpha Theta electronically no later than midnight CST, February 1, 2010.
