The tournament was held in the Student Services Building on Wake Tech’s Main Campus on Saturday, November 16. Dozens of students from across North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama came together to put their calculus skills to the test.

Three Wake Tech students won individual awards: Omar Saffouri won 2nd place; Diwash Thapa, 3rd place; and John Anderson, 4th place.

In the team competition, which included 10 rounds of questions, Wake Tech students John Anderson, Joseph Caswell, and David Martin took 3rd place honors.
