WALNUT, CA-- The Suzanne Middle School MATHCOUNTS team won a dozen gold medals during this year’s L.A. County Math Field Day on April 30.

Members are eighth graders Darren Chen, William Lin, Tyler Xu and Clement Chan.

Over 30 school districts from across the county sent teams to the event held at Glendale High School. The competition has a new format which focuses on Common Core mathematics curriculum and teamwork.  

Students worked together in teams to solve problems and explain their understanding.  Teams were graded on mathematical knowledge and judged on group interaction and collaboration.

Suzanne’s MATHCOUNTS team took the top prize in both the Problem Solving and Conceptual Understanding categories.  They also took home a teamwork participation medal.

“It was a very exciting and rewarding day for our mathletes,” said coach Amy Erickson.
