Mathcounts will be held Feb. 13

The Ward County Mathcounts Competition will be held Feb. 13 on the third floor of the Minot State University Student Center.

The event is for sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-graders from public and private schools in the county. Students will compete individually and as teams in written and fast paced oral matches, according to a press release. Possible topics include probability, statistics, algebra and geometry. The competition will begin at 10 a.m. and trophies will be awarded at about 1 p.m., followed by the countdown round.

Ward County is part of Region 3 and the top two school teams and eight individual students will be selected to compete in the state competition later this spring, based on their scores in the regional competition.
