RIT to host math contest for hard-of-hearing students
Deaf or hard-of-hearing middle school students from across the country can participate in Rochester Institute of Technology’s sixth annual Math Competition for Students Who are Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing, April 4 – 6, 2014 at RIT’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf.
This competition for middle school students in 6th, 7th or 8th grades is designed to promote math as fun and engaging and features three rounds that test speed and accuracy, teamwork and additional math skills. Cash prizes will be awarded to team and individual winners in several categories. All participants will receive T-shirts and medals.
The first 25 schools that submit completed registration forms and payment, or payment authorizations, for either teams or individual students who want to compete, will be accepted to participate in the competition.
Registration will be closed when the 25-school limit is reached. The final registration deadline is December 15, 2013.
Registration is $90 registration per team (four students) or $25 for students who register individually. Coaches and students wishing to participate in the next competition can get more information online.
Parents and teachers are encouraged to accompany the students during the weekend, which offers fun and social activities in addition to the math competition.
