Middle School Math Meet

On Tuesday, April 25, eight Belleville Middle School students participated in the regional Math Meet, sponsored by the Greater Dane County Advanced Learner Network (GDCALN). The Belleville Math Team, consisting of four 7th grade students and four 8th grade students, competed against nine other teams from area schools in the regional contest. The Belleville team placed fourth. Jack Nolden was the 2nd place overall individual winner, while Matthew Loshaw took 5th place overall.

Goals of the GDCALN Math Meet are to stimulate and encourage an interest in mathematics, identify and recognize exceptional mathematical talent, and provide a healthy, competitive academic activity.

Schools form teams that compete at regional meets. Winners from the regional meets advance to "Mega" meets. [Submitted by Sandy Walejko]
