Calculator Team Adds Up Wins

        The North Shore Senior High School Math & Science Team competed in the Texas Math and Science Coaches Association state competition on March 17 at University of Texas San Antonio. Over 20 teams competed from around the state of Texas. There were four areas for teams to compete in: number sense; calculator applications; mathematics; and science. The North Shore Math & Science Team earned a first place trophy in calculator applications. This is their second year in a row to receive this award. "I'm proud to be a part of this team. And [team coach] Mr. Kirby's time, knowledge, and mathematical expertise has been integral to our success," said Zachary Fradette, North Shore Senior High School junior.

        The team is now preparing for the UIL State competition to be held in Austin on May 21. The team expects to bring home a first place trophy from this competition as well. "But," adds Fradette, "it won't happen without lots of practice."
