Madeira’s math team places 2nd in Virginia

April 29, 2020

Madeira’s Math Team placed 2nd in the state out of 57 teams and is the highest placing all-girls team in the State. The Virginia Mathematics League holds several competitions throughout the school year, adding up the scores at the end of the year to determine a winner. 

Individually, Corinna Chen ‘21 placed 4th and Lily Ru ‘23 placed 11th!

Ms. Jean Wright, Math Teacher and Math Team Advisor, is very pleased with the results. “I’ve worked with the Math Team for the last four years. The contest questions are difficult and require an extensive knowledge of math concepts and  creativity. The Team has improved their standing in the Virginia Math League every year from 16th place to 2nd place. There are many dedicated girls that participate just for their personal satisfaction. They make me proud.”

We are so proud of our Snails!
