GHS students take spots in Coyote Area Math Championship

Graham High School students did well in calculus at a recent math championship, taking second place as a team and three top-10 positions in individual competition.
Fourteen area high schools, including Graham, participated in Weatherford College’s 15th annual Coyote Area Math Championship on Friday, Feb. 3.
Guest speaker Matthew Wright, a research scientist from Lockheed Martin’s Stealth Technology Department, spoke to the participants about the application of mathematics in his profession, including his research in radar technology and the application of complex numbers in engineering. He also shared photos and videos of the F-35 and other Lockheed projects.
The competition part of the day has students compete as individuals and teams in pre-calculus and calculus tests.
Plains Capital Bank in Weatherford was the event sponsor.
