In preparation for my trip, one of the first things I knew I needed was traditional Islamic dress. In Saudi Arabia, all women are required to wear an abaya and a hijab in public places. Wearing these clothes won’t be a problem for me. Just another adventure!
In 16 years it’s tripled in size, peaking this fall with more than 300 students representing 24 high schools from across Northeast Pennsylvania. BU’s annual Math Contest has become quite the targeted fall event for many schools, some of which enter multiple teams to compete in brainteasers, quiz bowl, and the popular Game of 24 card challenge.
Along with the Math Club, students and faculty from the Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics coordinate and run the all-day contest. The three competitions vary in difficulty and work off a foundation of geometry, trigonometry, algebra, logic and statistics. Adding to the contest’s popularity are several alumni, who once volunteered as BU students, now high school teachers bringing their students back to campus as competitors. #CollaborativeLearning
