Desert Mountain hosts math marathon

  • Becky Kelbaugh/Scottsdale Unified School District

Middle school students throughout the Valley will compete Friday, April 11 at the Desert Mountain Math Marathon (DM3), a school-based, team math competition.

The event will be held  from 3:45 p.m. to 8:20 p.m. in the Desert Mountain High School infoor cafeteria at 12575 E. Via Linda in Scottsdale.

The competition is organized by Desert Mountain High School students and faculty and seeks to nurture middle school students’ mathematical talent and interest.

Along with fostering a sense of communal interest in math, the DM3 aims to prepare and encourage middle school students to do well in prestigious math competitions in high school and develop an understanding and appreciation for the subject, given our nation’s shortage of talent in STEM fields.

Top performing schools and individuals will be rewarded and acknowledged during an award ceremony shortly after the competition. The Desert Mountain Math Marathon competition is a non-profit venture and any operating income will be donated to charity.
