Math students win at YSU’s MathFest
Senior Amanda O'Reilly won a second-place award and a team of NDCL students took third place at Youngstown State University's MathFest 2014 on Thursday.
 
Amanda worked with a group of three other students—all from different high schools—to solve interesting, non-standard mathematics problems in just one hour in the mixed team competition.
 
The third-place statistics poster designed by seniors Mac Hertz, Collin O'Neill, Mick Stanovsek, and Sam Dimmick now advances to the American Statistics Association's national competition.
  
Each year MathFest draws about 350 students from Ohio and Pennsylvania for a series of math workshops and competitions. Mathematics teachers Mrs. Ashley Kelm and Mrs. Beth Ward organized NDCL's participation and accompanied the students to the event.
