Chesapeake Science Point (CSP) Charter School recaptured first place in Round 3 of the Anne Arundel County High School Mathematics Competition hosted by and at Anne Arundel Community College.
The Dec. 3 competition saw 148 participants from 15 public and private high schools. Severn School fell back to second place and Archbishop Spalding High School took third place in this round. Overall, the top three tournament contenders are CSP, 1st place, Severn School, 2nd place, and Annapolis High School, 3rd place.
Each competition is divided into two phases. In the first phase, students work individually to answer as many of six questions as possible during the 30-minute time limit. Eight students achieved a perfect score: Jeremy Dy, Andrew Link, Micah Nissly and Ruslan Onyshkevych from Chesapeake Science Point; Willy Griffin from Key School, Christopher Kim from Old Mill High School, Will Lagarde from Severn School and Robert Thompson from Archbishop Spalding High School.
In the second phase of the competition, the students work in teams of up to five members each to answer another set of six questions in 30 minutes. Chesapeake Science Point was the only team that achieved a perfect score on this part of the competition.
School scores are computed by adding the best team score to the average of the top three individuals’ scores. Third-round scores: CSP, 12.0; Severn School, 9.33; Archbishop Spalding High, 8.33; Annapolis High, 8.0; Severna Park High, 7.0; North County High, 6.67; Broadneck High, 6.33; Arundel High, 6.0; Key School and Southern High, each 5.67; South River High, 5.0; Chesapeake High and Glen Burnie High, each 4.0; Old Mill High, 3.67; and Meade High, 2.33.
The overall competition rankings: CSP, 31.67; Severn School, 29.33; Annapolis High, 25.67; Key School, 22.33; Broadneck High, 21.33; Archbishop Spalding, 21.0; Severna Park High, 20.67; Arundel High, 18.67; South River High, 18.0; North County High, 17.0; Old Mill High, 12.0; Glen Burnie High, 9.0; Chesapeake High, 8.67; Southern High, 8.0; Meade High, 5.33.
