Over 300 mathletes gathered on May 29 at Earl Warren Showgrounds to test their math skills at the 38th Annual South Coast Math Superbowl. Fourth through sixth graders from 32 public and private schools in Carpinteria, Goleta, and Santa Barbara competed in this annual event sponsored by the Santa Barbara County Education Office, Montecito Union School District, Cold Spring School District, and Peabody Charter School.

“This event brings together students who love math to compete in a subject they are passionate about. It not only tests their individual acumen, but promotes collaboration and teambuilding in a fun, positive, and motivating environment,” said Jeff Linder, Math Superbowl coordinator and math specialist at Montecito Union School District. “It’s great to see the joy on their faces as they tackle these challenges.”

The competition includes two individual and one team round at each grade level. The first part focuses on mathematical concepts and the second part includes five problems for each student to solve. The team round is a collaborative problem solving contest with five challenging problems.
