Flower Mound again rules UTA Calculus Bowl
Teams from 22 area high schools matched wits to answer a series of challenging calculus problems. Points were awarded for fastest correct response, and the top eight teams advanced to the final round, where Flower Mound edged runner-up Highland Park by a single point to retain the title.
"It was an exciting competition with lots of very bright students," said Calculus Bowl founder and coordinator Hristo Kojouharov, associate professor of mathematics. "It's good to see students get so excited about math and this is exactly what the event is about."
Flower Mound team members included Ameya Bhat, Adeesh Jain, Sarah Song and Sabrina Thompson, with Flower Mound math teachers Mary Walker and Russell Yeatts serving as team coaches.
"We were very excited to win it for the third time in a row, especially with such tough competition," Walker said.
The event is one of many outreach programs conducted by the College of Science aimed at inspiring enthusiasm in math and science among area school-age students.
