The Montgomery Catholic Middle School participated in the Auburn Mathematical Puzzle Challenge (AMP’ed) this past Saturday, September 28th, against 13 other teams.  The MCPS team brought home first place for the second year in a row, edging out St. James in a tie breaker.  The seventh and eighth grade students who participated were Lauren Beverly, Lita Blackburn, Sam Caudill, Luke Craig, Henry Petters, Hyunjoo Rho, Ricky Treloar and Marcelo Villena.  The students were challenged to figure out several mathematical puzzles to win puzzle pieces that were put together to answer a ‘who dunnit’ type of problem.  MCPS Middle School Math Team Teacher sponsors Julie Flowers and Vicki Petters said, “The students had a great time working together on the big puzzles, as well as answering quick mental math problems to put together sets.” All of the team members had a fun day together on the Auburn University Campus, using their math skills and coming home victorious. The Montgomery Catholic High School Robotics team sponsored the Middle School Math Team for this event by paying the entrance fee.
