On Friday, February 1st, 22 students left Corpus Christi headed to Rice University to participate in their annual High School Math Competition. We were treated to a wonderful dinner at Gigi’s Asian Bistro in the Galleria by Lynda and David Daniel (grandparents of Austin and Kameron Hanna). The next day, we participated in the following events: Power Round, General Test, Advanced Topics, Algebra, Geometry and the Team Round. We learned a lot on our trip and all realized that we have a LOT to learn. It humbled us and inspired us to keep meeting, wrestling with hard problems, and adding to our mathematical knowledge and skills.
