Congratulations to our traveling MathCounts 2016 teams! Our mathletes represented AES well at our recent chapter competition in Dubai. Kargil Behl, grade 6, took top honors as the highest scoring individual overall. Kargil battled face to face in a “sudden death” competition to win his individual gold medal. Our Black and Gold teams also took 3rd place and 6th place out of 15 competing teams.
In addition to a weekend filled with Mathematics, we explored the Dubai Mall, saw the Burj Khalifa, made new friends,and spent time enjoying the sunshine at The Beach, Jumeirah. As one participant commented, “This trip was about a lot more than Math!” We are looking forward to the written State Competition to be given in March. The top scoring four individuals from all international state-department sponsored schools will form the State Department team and participate in the National Mathcounts Competition in Washington, DC in early May.
