The organizers of the 2012 Washington State Math Championship said that Fairhaven Middle School students did pretty good in the competition, which was on April 28 at Blaine schools.
The 25th annual competition attracted 338 teams of fifth-, sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders — more than 1,300 students — from throughout the state.
The event included an individual test, followed by team competition in mental math, algebra, geometry and probability.
While Seattle-area schools typically take home the majority of awards, organizers said, Fairhaven Middle School fared well this year.
- In the sixth-grade individual test, Fairhaven student Tadeusz Pforte finished 10th (out of 356 sixth graders).
- In the sixth-grade team division, Fairhaven #3 finished 25th out of 89 teams.
- In the seventh-grade team division, Fairhaven team #2 finished 23rd out of 60 teams.
- In the eighth-grade team competition, Fairhaven #1 came in eighth out of 43 teams.
ConocoPhillips (now Phillips 66) in Ferndale and the Blaine School District hosted the competition.
