  16 In-A-Row: CSP Math Team Extends Winning Streak at AACC High School Math Competition  
 

​Chesapeake Science Point (CSP) Public Charter School's Math Team continued its winning ways, winning todays 3rd competition of the Anne Arundel Community College’s (AACC) High School Math Competition season. This win extended CSP's winning streak to an incredible 16 events in a row, extending over four seasons.

In this competition, students compete in two rounds, an individual round where students have thirty minutes to complete six hard problems, and a team round where a team of five students must work together to complete six more very challenging problems in thirty minutes. A team’s top three scoring individual scores are averaged and added to their top scoring team score to create the schools final score for each meet.

In this competition, only three students out of the 15 public and private schools represented earned a perfect score on the individual round. CSP 10th grader Benjamin Kelm accomplished this feat, earning him an apple from the AACC mathematics professors that organize and sponsor this contests. Along with Benjamin, other high scoring individuals for CSP today included 10th graders Anthony Krieger and Ryan Budahazy and 12th grader Clarissa Sorrels each of whom scored 5 out of 6 correctly. On the team round, CSP's team of Benjamin, Anthony, Ryan, Clarissa were joined by their teammate, CSP 11th grader Roman Onyshkevych, and together they earned a perfect score, correctly solving all six problems. They were one of only two teams at today's event to accomplish this feat.

Chesapeake Science Point was represented at the competition by:

8th grade: John Gallerizzo, Christian Hardy, Mark Kelm, Connor Parker, Cory Powers, Nathan Taylor, Bosith Weerasinghe and Stanley Zhu

9th grade: Glenn Boyette, Eric Chu and Kaitlin White

10th grade: Matthew Boyer, Ryan Budahazy, Benjamin Kelm, Anthony Krieger and David Kravets

  Español I  
 

Students in Middle School are learning and practicing expressions related to clothing. During this unit we review terminology associated with weather and seasons and we also re-visit numerical terminology as we describe the cost for each item.

The next time you happen to be out on a shopping spree you may be pleasantly surprised to discover that your child is able to tell you in Spanish the name of the clothing items you may want to purchase, how much they cost and what season of the year each item would be appropriate for wearing.

Our 8th grade class is learning all about sports and the equipment required to play each sport in Spanish. Did you know that there is plenty of professional baseball being played during the winter months? Your 8th grade student can tell you all about it! How many sports does the expression "football" refer to? Ask your 8th grade Spanish student for the answer.

As always, I am grateful for your continued support of the instruction that takes place in the classroom.
