Gainesville High School advanced to the second round in the Moody’s Mega Math Challenge, a competition for high school juniors and seniors to develop a mathematical model for a real-world problem.
Team members include Nolen Bryant, Kush Patel, Jakim Johnson, Pramoda Karnati and Jorge Deras.
Only 201 of the 1,128 teams that submitted viable solution papers were selected to advance to the second round, with team prizes possible between $1,000 and $20,000. The competition involves extensive research, computational skills, in-depth analysis and communication skills.
The top six teams present their papers at the validation round on April 27 at Moody’s Corp. headquarters in Manhattan.
