Solving Problems with Math and Logic
February 1-2. This year, forty-five gymnasium and lykeion teams participated in the 9th Annual Math and Logic Competition, a fun competition that asks students to apply their mathematical skills and logic to solve puzzles of varying degrees of difficulty. On Saturday, they competed in four different rounds, and on Sunday, the 12 best competed in the semi-finals, and the best of these in the finals. Puzzle Masters, a team of three gymnasium students from three different schools, and the American Farm School won the gymnasium and lykeion categories respectively.
