SUBJECT: High School Mathematics Competition
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at The Citadel is planning to host a "Mathematics Competition" to be held on three Wednesdays, February 11, February 18, and February 25, 2009.
There will be two levels of competition available, and each school may choose to send students to either or both levels. Level I questions will include topics from Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry. The level I competition is open to any student who has not had a course more advanced than Algebra II or Geometry. The level II questions will include topics from Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Advanced Mathematics (Algebra III, Calculus).
Competitions will be held from 3:45 to 5:45
each Wednesday in Duckett Hall Auditorium on campus at The Citadel. (Level I
4:00 to 4:45, level II 5:00 to 5:45, we ask you to arrive early so the competitions

It is not necessary that each school be represented at each competition. I look forward to sharing this experience with you. Please see http://22.214.171.124/highcomp/2009stuf/2009.htm for more information. In particular, parking information and a campus map will be posted there.
