Students from Valley Central High School’s (VCHS) math team placed first and second in the Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, Sullivan (DUSO) sectional math meet, which was held on March 16 at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie.
The teams answered six individual math questions followed by a team or relay question. The mathematics problems encompassed the first three years of math at the high school level – algebra, trigonometry and geometry – and students could not use calculators to complete the questions.
Senior Jeremy Friedman, who has been a part of VCHS’s math team since he was a freshman, earned a high enough individual score to compete at the state level competition, which was held in Rochester, New York on April 9. For Jeremy, it was his second time being invited to compete at the state level.
