Grade 9 Student exceed provincial average at Math Competition
by Mr Graham - Monday, May 23, 2016
This year's Math 9 team was made up of 10 students from the English and French programs. The students had to qualify for a spot on the team by having an in-house competition.
The contest is a non-calculator, 1 hour in length multiple choice exam written across the province of NB at 4 locations. Mistakes are deducted from the overall score by 25% of an increasing value from part A, B or C. This year saw a total of 1200 students write from grades 7-9.
Our District had the #1 finisher for grade 9, a RNS student and SJHS was fortunate to have the 2nd place and 3rd place finishers, Albert Cho and Jimin Lee respectively for the ASD-S.
Team SJHS did a great job overall with a team average of 43% while the Province had a 23% success rate.
We are all proud of our Hounds!
