2015 MATHletes Challenge Provincial Finalists
Note from the MATHletes Coaching team:
We were completely blown away by the time, effort, and intensity that each of you put into mastering challenges on Khan Academy over the last 3 months in the Student Challenge. We had a very difficult job narrowing the field from over 12,000 MATHletes down to the 680 that we could invite to the provincial playoffs. All MATHletes should be incredibly proud of the work that you did representing your school, town, and county in the Challenge.
If you school is competing in the Schools Challenge, keep up the work on Khan Academy through April 16th to earn points for your school! If you did not qualify this year, keep training on Khan Academy in the off-season to hit the ground running in the Champions League next year! Special congrats to our finalists!
Congratulations to all competitors, well done to the finalists, and thank you for inspiring all of us at MATHletes. Remember: You Can Learn Anything!
