High School and College Students Win Integration Bee

Ivan Rivera, East Stroudsburg High School South, won the high school division competition at The University of Scranton’s 2014 Math Integration Bee. University of Scranton student Daniel Clark of Scranton won the Integration Bee’s college division. The University’s Mathematics Department hosted the Integration Bee in April on campus.
Five participants in both the high school and college categories moved on to the final round of the competition. In addition to Rivera, finalists in the high school division were Cierra Beck, Abington Heights High School; Greg Guan, Wyoming Seminary; and Matt Helbers and Patrick Leggieri, both from East Stroudsburg High School South.
Other finalists in the college division were University of Scranton students Alex Cameron of Archbald; Rob McCloskey of Peckville; and Catherine Sullivan of Granby, Conn.; and Noah Riggenbach, Pocono Lake, a senior at Scranton Preparatory School who has taken college level mathematics courses at the University and competed in the college division.
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 students improve their skills for Advanced Placement mathematics tests.
