MACON, Ga. A team of four students from Northview High School in Alpharetta won second place in the 38th annual state mathematics tournament on Saturday, April 26, in Macon.

The team of David Xing, Cathy Sun, Alice Lin and Woo Jae Kim placed second in the state over all classifications.

David Xing placed first in the individual competition. They were coached by Northview mathematics teacher Brian Stone.

At the state competition, competitors individually complete a 50-question multiple-choice test and a speed round followed by teams working together to complete a set of a dozen challenging problems.

The questions come from topics included in the standard high school curriculum up to and including calculus, as well as topics not traditionally found in the curriculum, such as number theory and combinatorics.

The Georgia Council of Teachers of Mathematics (GCTM) sponsors the annual state math championship. Schools are invited to send four of their best math team students to compete. Schools earn an invitation to the state math tournament based on their performance at other tournaments throughout the state. Schools from all Georgia High School Association (GHSA) and Georgia Independent School Association (GISA) classifications compete together.

"We make every effort to invite the schools with the best math teams in Georgia so that this is truly a battle of champions," said Tournament Director and GCTM Vice President of Competitions Dr. Chuck Garner.

The tournament was held at the Middle Georgia State College (MGSC) Conference Center in Macon. GCTM, MGSC and AT&T of Georgia sponsored the event. Mu Alpha Theta, the national mathematics honor society, made cash prizes available to the top three individual winners.

At the conclusion of the state tournament, the students selected for the All-State Math Team are announced. This team will represent the state of Georgia at the nation-wide American Regions Math League (ARML) tournament on May 31. All four students from the Northview team were selected.
