Mathematics Superbowl Contests Add Up to Big Wins for Local Students

Competition draws more than 320 fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade students from 29 schools

Hundreds of elementary students gathered Thursday to divide and conquer at the 30th annual South Coast Mathematics Superbowl.

More than 320 fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade students from 29 schools filled Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara as part of an event that has become an annual tradition among aspiring mathletes.

Each participating school selects four of its best math students in each grade to send to the competition, where they competed in individual and team contests.

Among the individual schools, Mountain View School placed first, followed by Washington School in second and Peabody Charter School in third.

Among grade level teams, Mountain View earned first place in the fourth, fifth- and sixth-grade divisions.

In individual results, Mountain View fourth-grader Paul Grosen and fifth-grader Jonathan Liu placed first. In the sixth-grade division, four students tied for first: Mark Nevins of Kellogg School, Christopher Gaffney of Washington, Katie Yang of Mountain View and Anhyo Jeong of Ellwood Elementary.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
