Carderock Math Competition 2016 - CMIT Newsletter Picture 1.jpg

On March 18, 2016, CMIT North’s Middle School Math Team WINS 2nd PLACE!

Having once again competed in the 7th Annual Carderock Math Contest (CMC) invitational at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Carderock Division in West Bethesda, Maryland. CMC is an invitational math contest for middle school students from the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia private and public schools.

The competition was made up of three main rounds: a Team Round, and an individual round made up of both the Target Round and the Sprint Round. The students got to solve 10 questions for 20 minutes together in the Team round. In the Target round, the students individually solve 8 questions in 30 minutes. Lastly, the Sprint round is comprised of 30 questions which the students solve individually in 40 minutes.

The two CMIT North teams consisted of “2 ∞ + Beyond!” (Arya Pawar, John Ikegwu, Joshua Ikegwu and Kevin Le), and “The ∏ rates” (Kavyasri Gouda, Favour Fatusin, Haris Chaudry and Ian Kaba). 2 ∞ + Beyond! won second place in the Starboard division’s Team Round, while Kevin Le won second place in the Starboard division’s Individual Sprint Round.

Big Congratulations goes to all our students who represented our school. We give special thanks to Mr. Avsar for coaching and leading the team and also to Mrs. Pawar and Mrs. Ikegwu, our parent chaperons. In addition, special thanks also go to all CLF and CMIT staff and parents for all their support in preparing our students.

CLF will be recognizing the CMIT North MS and HS Math Teams for their recent success by inviting both students and parents to a luncheon on April 21, 2016 at 3PM.
