Tennessee Wesleyan College recently hosted seven local high schools for this year's East Tennessee Regional Math Contest. The annual contest is a statewide high school mathematics contest that is sponsored by the Tennessee Mathematics Teachers' Association (TMTA) and has been hosted at TWC for many years. Held on Thursday, April 16, this year’s competitors were Athens City Middle School, Cleveland High School, McMinn Central High School, McMinn County High School, Meigs County High School, Tennessee Christian Preparatory School, and Walker Valley High School.

The competitors competed in six mathematic topics including Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-calculus, Statistics, and Advanced Topics (Calculus). In addition to TWC’s East Tennessee regional, TMTA held a Middle Tennessee and a West Tennessee Regional. Scores from all three contests will be compared and overall winners will be awarded at the regional and state level.

“Tennessee Wesleyan strives to support our local grade schools and the accomplishments of their students,” said Dr. David Ashe, TWC assistant professor of mathematics and TMTA regional chair. “We hope to be an integral part of the community and encourage scholarship. I truly enjoy organizing this event every year and I plan to continue to promote Mathematics and the TMTA contest annually.”
