Vishnu Dasari from Central Columbia High School won The University of Scranton’s 2018 Math Integration Bee for high school students. In addition to Dasari, the four other finalists in the competition were: Kaitlyn Beiler, Hazleton Area High School; Mateen Kasim, Abington Heights High School; Andy Liz, Wyoming Seminary Preparatory School; and Haylee Merola, Hazleton Area Academy of Sciences.

The University’s Mathematics Department hosted the Integration Bee during the spring semester on campus. The format for the Integration Bee is similar to a spelling bee, however, participants find antiderivatives of functions of a single real variable. The competition can help high school students improve their skills for Advanced Placement mathematics tests.
