Math Integration Bee Winners Announced

August 16, 2017

Steven Simpkins from Hazleton Area High School won the high school division competition at The University of Scranton’s 2017 Math Integration Bee. University of Scranton student Danny Tartaglione of Pocono Summit won the Integration Bee’s college division. The University’s Mathematics Department hosted the Integration Bee during the spring semester on campus.

Five participants in both the high school and college divisions moved on to the final round of the competition. In addition to Simpkins, finalists in the high school division were: Maria Aliaga, Isai Martinez and Megan Reed from Hazleton Area High School; and Connor McGowan from Wyoming Seminary Preparatory School.

Other finalists in the college division were: University of Scranton students Zach Fiscus of Scranton; Sara Gleco of Shickshinny; Nicole Nardella of Spring Brook Township; and Nick Russoniello of Jefferson Township.

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.
