Sequoia Middle School Students Earn Awards At 43rd Annual TCOE Math Super Bowl

PUSD middle school students participated Tuesday in the 43rd annual Tulare County Office of Education Math Super Bowl. Seventh and eighth grade students from Bartlett Middle School, Pioneer Middle School and Sequoia Middle School were part of the competition that included 38 public and private schools from Tulare and Kings County public and private schools. The 122 teams (610 students) were divided into small schools and large schools divisions.

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.
