About the Northridge Mathletes
The team participates in competitions sponsored by The Illinois Council for Teachers of Mathematics (ICTM). The team begins preparing in January for the Regional Competition held in late February. In March, the team begins preparing for the State Finals Competition held early May.
Competing since 2005 in Division 1A, Northridge Mathletes have fielded a team of 20-30 students annually in all the individual and group events at the contest. Since 2011, we have won first place in the Regionals and finished in the top 10 in our division during the State Finals held at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The team’s highest state finish was 2nd place in 2016.
If you are a high school student and interested in a challenge above and beyond your normal math class, then the math team is for you! To be considered for the team, students must take two tryout exams starting in October. Only those students with high grades, high tryout scores and excellent interpersonal skills are invited to join. Please contact Mr. Steve Omachi, Mathematics Department Chair, for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
