Mathematical Puzzle Programs (MaPP) High School Challenge

What:   a competition for teams of 4-8 high school students, supported by the SCSU Center for Excellence in Mathematics and Science. Any high school in Connecticut is welcome to participate. We expect most participating schools to bring one team, but where there is exuberant interest or a large math team, a school may bring two teams. (If you want to bring a third team contact Braxton directly.)
