The Fifth Rockdale Math Competition
The fifth competition took place in December 2009.
The only date available to us to use the building was the second Saturday in December, December 12. This conflicted with an ACT date, the start of semester exams, and other events. We also instituted a new rule that is more in line with our belief that this tournament focus on the younger math team kids: a high school may only bring a single varsity team if that school also brings a JV team. As a result, the varsity division was smaller than in previous years, but the JV division became more competitive.
Again we offered an ARML-style competition, with a Power, Team, Relay, and Individual rounds. Each school was invited to bring up to three six-student teams in each of middle school or junior varsity, with an additional varsity team.
Trophies were awarded to the top 3 teams in each of middle school, junior varsity, and varsity per classification, and the top 13 middle school individuals, the top 15 JV individuals, and the top 10 varsity individuals were each recognized with a trophy. Additionally, the first place individual winners earned a graphing calculator: middle school, a TI-84 Plus Silver; junior varsity, a TI-89 Titanium; and varsity, a TInspire CAS.
Listed here are all team rankings per level and the top individual winners in each category.
