Lake Bluff Middle School students have entered a video in the Math Counts Video Challenge, and are asking community members to vote for their video through March 13.
As part of an enrichment project, four students (Emily Cheng, Helene Gu, Tyler McFadden, and Ryan McFadden) chose a problem from a list of over 200 possibilities. Their goal was to focus on a problem about which they could write a story and then solve, explaining their solution to their audience in a simple way.
Once the students chose the problem, they wrote the script and then filmed and edited it, calling in some friends to be additional actors.
The top 100 vote-getters will evaluated by the Math Counts judges, and from there, the videos will be narrowed down to 20. After that, a select few will receive a trip to Florida to present their videos at the Math Counts National Competition.
