Math Contests

Math contests look great on scholarship applications and resumes, but if you've never tried one, the idea can be intimidating.  The Pascal, Cayley and Fermat contests are coming up, and they are probably the best ones to try if you've never done one before.  They are grade-specific, for grades 9-11, only 60 minutes long, and you are allowed a calculator.  These contests will be written in block 1 on Tuesday, February 8th.  Sign up in the Math wing on the contest board, or talk to either Mr. Skanks or Mr. Paananen if you have any questions.

Bake Sale – Thursday
There will be a bake sale this THURSDAY at lunch.  Bring along your sweet tooth and support the CSI swimmers.
