Local schools win awards in UND Math Track Meet

About 140 students in grades 7-12 took part in the annual Math Track Meet last week at the University of North Dakota.

Traditionally held on Presidents’ Day, the UND Math Track Meet is a problem-solving competition that the UND Department of Mathematics in the College of Arts & Sciences has hosted for more than 30 years. It serves as a means to engage area students and their teachers as well as to promote the study of mathematics. It also encourages interaction between mathematics students and teachers and UND faculty.

“As with many things this year, we held the UND Math Track Meet remotely,” said Ryan Zerr, professor of mathematics and Math Track Meet coordinator. “We hope to return to our traditional face-to-face format next year.”
