Two Palumbo math teams set out to compete in the Moody’s Mega Math Challenge. Both teams were able to compete and each team submitted their papers to the event organizers for the competition. The competition was to write a math based paper on a real world event that the students received that morning. The Palumbo teams worked from 9am until 9pm.
