CPCC Math Students Win Third Place in NCMATYC Mathematics Competition

On Saturday, Nov. 18, CPCC math instructors Cao Nguyen and Hai Ngo took a group of seven, top-performing math students to the 8th Annual North Carolina Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges Students Math Competition(NCMATYC) Mathematics Competition hosted at Forsyth Technical Community College. The group competed against 100 students from 12 community colleges located across the state.

The competition consisted of two parts: a morning calculus exam (90 minutes, 40 questions, multiple-choice, calculators not allowed) and an afternoon team competition containing solely pre-calculus problems (scientific calculators only, provided by the competition organizers).

The CPCC won third place overall in the competition. Kudos to the team on this accomplishment!
