Math League has been an academic competition at West since 1985 and teacher Steve Jones (also the Mankato Teacher of the Year) has been the only coach Math League has ever had.
Not sure what Math League is? Mr. Jones describes the meets like this: There are 4 individual tests of which each participant is limited to two. If a student takes more the lowest two scores are recorded. Each team has 4 varsity members in each event. Only 4 scores count if more than 4 varsity tests are taken in an event the lowest 4 count. There is a team round where all 8 varsity people work together to solve 6 problems.
This year there are 21 students involved in Math League. Their next meet is February 9th.
