Montgomery students compete in math contest

Bethesda / Chevy Chase / Potomac / Kensington

TALK OF THE TOWN
A math problem flashed onto a screen and within seconds, one of the middle school students on stage pressed a buzzer and gave the correct answer. They calculated percentages, perimeters and areas, competing to get the correct answers and advance to the next round of competition. The students were pitting their numerical wits against each other Friday in the sixth annual Carderock Math Contest at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Bethesda. About 230 students from 30 schools in Maryland, Washington and Virginia participated in the day of written and team competitions that culminated in an on-stage final competition and an awards ceremony.
