UNL Math Day open to all students

Mooshoo Tran, News Editor

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will be holding their annual “Math Day” on Nov. 15 for Nebraska students.

All students going will take the “Problems Requiring Original and Brilliant Effort (PROBE I) test, a one hour long multiple choice test. Students who rank in the top five will be awarded a plaque and students in the top 40 will advance to take PROBE II, a one hour essay exam that will be graded by the faculty in the UNL Department of Mathematics. The students with the top ten cumulative PROBE I and PROBE II scores will be awarded scholarships from a pool of $34,000.

During the PROBE II test, the remaining students will have the chance of  competing in a “Math Bowl”, a double-elimination tournament where teams of three compete against each other for trophies.

Students interested in going, can contact math teacher Angela Daughtrey.

“I take about 15 students every year, because we share a bus with Bellevue East,” Daughtrey said. “I’m hoping that I’ll get the full 15 to go, it’s always fun to go to do math for a day.”
