Kahok Mathletes earned their way to the Top 5 on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at the ICTM State Math Contest held at the University of Illinois.
The Calculator Team of seniors Jimmy Moore and Eliza Apperson, junior Hannah Herman, sophomore Tyler Boerner and freshman Aidan Kaufman placed 5th overall.
“They tied with the third and fourth place teams but lost out on tiebreakers. The first and second place teams had only one more correct answer than we did,” reports Math Team Coach and CHS teacher Bill Gottschalk.
Individually, freshman Aidan Kaufman had a great day . He placed 6th on the Algebra 1 exam from among 159 freshmen from similar sized schools across the state.
