Briarcrest Student Carrington Kelsey Scores Third Highest Score In Memphis On Tennessee Mathematics Teachers Association Contest
On April 12, 2016, Briarcrest Christian Middle School sent five eighth grade students to take the Algebra I test for the TMTA Contest (Tennessee Mathematics Teachers’ Association) at the University of Memphis. The eighth graders who represented Briarcrest Middle School were Julia Abel, Alli Clarkson, Hannah Hutton, Carrington Kelsey, and Alex Tiatia.
They competed with 65 students from the Memphis area. The test consists of 40 questions that must be completed in 80 minutes. The questions are written by college mathematics professors so most of the questions are quite difficult. Our students did exceptionally well this year. Julia Abel had the 13th highest score out of the 65 students, and Carrington Kelsey had the 3rd highest score. This is the highest finish Briarcrest has ever had on the Algebra I TMTA Math exam! Way to go, BCS SAINTS!!!!
