Kettle Falls 9/10th Grade Math Team Finishes 3rd in State!!!
This weekend a group of 9th graders travelled to Moses Lake for the state Math Competition. Two of the students placed 6th and 8th among all Geometry students in the state, and the team placed 3rd overall! The students pictured are the five that travelled to Moses Lake, but they are only a portion of the math team. Several math team competitors were unable to travel due to other obligations. Great Job!
After studying projectile motion, the physics class went to the football field where the students calculated the velocity of the rocket, calculated the distance it would travel, placed a target downrange, and launched an air powered rocket. They came within five yards of their calculated distance!
