DEWITT — Five Christian Brothers Academy seniors advanced to the second round of the 10th annual Moody Mega Math Challenge recently.
On March 1, these students completed a 14-hour math problem that resulted in a 20-page solution paper. Their paper was judged to be in the top 201 out of a total of 1,228 submissions from around the country (top 16 percent). The event is an Internet-based applied math completion open to juniors and seniors, and awards $125,000 in scholarships.
