The Wilson School may bring all students who qualify for the regional exam to competition. The regional competition is on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at Parkway West High School. Please note, this is the only day the test is offered. We ask that only students who are able to attend the regional tryout for the Wilson MCTM team. To assist students in qualifying for the regional, Maddie Cook & Angie Zinkl will be offering classes (please see the attached schedule). Because of the rigor of this contest, there is additional homework that is required to be completed outside of class. Typically, the homework will take about an hour or more a week. Additionally, over winter break, we will send home a packet (with answer key) for home practice. These classes are to help prepare students for the qualifying test that will be offered at Wilson on Wednesday, February 12 from 9:00am - 11:30am. This test will determine The Wilson School MCTM Team and is the only day it will be offered. We do not anticipate getting these results back until the end of February. A student will be invited to join the team and allowed to compete at the regional if he/she achieves any one of the following at our qualifier: 1. Earns at least 50% of the available points on any of the individual tests. 2. Scores strictly higher than 80% of the participants in his/her grade on any of the individual tests. 3. Participates on a team that scores at least 50% of the available points or strictly higher than 80% of the other teams on the test. Any student who qualifies for state at the regional competition will be advanced to the next round. The state competition will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2019 at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, MO. There is a fee of $50 for these sessions, materials, and qualifying test. There are no additional fees for those who qualify for the regional.
