Wyoming State Mathematics Contest at CWC hosts 154 students

The CWC Math Department hosted the annual Wyoming State Mathematics Contest on Thursday, May 11th for 154 local middle school and high school students. Students enjoyed visiting the CWC campus, solving challenging math problems, and eating pizza.

“We enjoy meeting students and sharing our love of mathematics,” said Mike Bostick, Professor of Mathematics at CWC.

Central Wyoming College’s mathematics program is characterized by a balance between theory and application. Appropriate technology is integrated at all levels of the curriculum. Employment in math occupations is projected to grow 28% from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for most occupations, resulting in about 42,900 new jobs. Businesses need mathematicians to analyze the increasing volume of digital and electronic data.
