Math Jeopardy Team Wins 3rd at MAA-SE

Math Jeopardy Team Spring 2015

The Math Jeopardy! teams from Georgia Southern traveled this weekend to the Ninety-fourth Annual Meeting of the Southeastern Section of the Mathematical Association of America, hosted this year by the University of North Carolina Wilmington. For the past twelve years MAA-SE has sponsored this competition, and it continues to be one of the highlights of the meeting for undergraduate students. Georgia Southern had two teams to compete:

  • Team A members: Garry Brown, Stephanie Hesse, Charles Lanning, and Yunwei Zhang
  • Team B members: Matt Cullens, Kayla Hagerty, Sam Hicks, and Vivek Patel

On Friday, both teams did very well in the first preliminary round, which launched both teams into the second preliminary round. Team B scored enough points in the second preliminary round to win the wild card, sending them to Final Jeopardy on Saturday (Ultimate Pi Day).

In Final Jeopardy, Team B won 3rd Place (out of 26 schools) overall, falling only to the University of South Carolina and Austin Peay University!!! Photos courtesy of Masa Uchida
