Yasoda Satpathy from Sequoia took first place honors in the 7th Grade Overall Power Bowl (Large Schools division) while Sequoia classmate Ryan Rusch took second place.
The students participate in a day-long series of mathematics challenges. Students work with members of other schools to solve one open-ended problem in the Pro Bowl test, which is evaluated against a rubric. They also work with members of their own team to solve 15 free-answer questions in the Team Bowl. The Power Bowl challenges students individually with 35 enhanced multiple-choice questions. Awards are given to students in both large and small school categories. Ribbons, medallions and trophies are awarded for excellent mathematical performances.
