Seymour Middle School sent 13 students to Indiana University Southeast in New Albany on April 27 to compete in the annual Indiana Council of Teachers of Mathematics Algebra and Pre-Algebra exams.
Students competed by subject area, not grade level, so some middle school students were competing with high school students for awards, according to a news release from Seymour Middle School math teacher Wayne Huddleston.
Two Seymour Middle School seventh graders competed in the 40-question pre-algebra exam. Megan Robertson finished with a score of 37 to place first in the regional and was one of only 12 students to be named an Outstanding Scholar in pre-algebra.
