UST Students Win Math Jeopardy!

November 2, 2015

On November 2, 2015, eight St. Thomas math students competed in Math Jeopardy! at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. St. Thomas took first place by beating Augsburg, Concordia, and Macalester in this competition.

The team consisted of junior Adam Berkowitz; sophomores Robert Klemm, Broderick Prokosch, Rachel Stang, Amanda Tenhoff; and freshmen Dana Connelly, Carol Michael, and Connor Skidmore.

Math Jeopardy! is much like regular Jeopardy! where the students get to pick from categories. In this case, however, the categories are math related – both computational and trivia questions are asked.
