Math competition

The third round of the annual high school mathematics competition will be Jan. 11 at Anne Arundel Community College.

During the October and November rounds, the standings changed quickly with less than a single point separating the top three schools: Severna Park, South River and Old Mill.

In the second of five rounds, Old Mill jumped from third to first place, South River finished second, and Meade took third to remain in fourth place overall.

October's first-round winner, Severna Park, fell all the way to sixth in the second round, but earned enough points to cling to third overall.

Although you may be skeptical, it really doesn't take a mathematician to keep score.

Final scores are calculated by adding a school's best team mark to the average of its top three individual marks.

In the second round, six students out of 109 had perfect papers in the individual phase: Steven Calder and Saul Cohen of Old Mill, Daniel Griffie of Northeast, Pat Hooper of Severna Park, Sang Kim of Meade and Joel Young of South River.

Old Mill and South River had perfect team scores.
