Does your student enjoy math and/or science?Do you want your student to be involved at CTMS?Do you want your student to improve their math and/or science skills?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above then you should consider having your student join the CTMS Math Science Team. The CTMS Math Science Team meets one to two days a week to work on math and science skills. Then one to two Saturdays a month we travel to other schools in the area to compete at Math Science Tournaments. The CTMS math science team is open to everyone, no matter what math or science classes your child takes. For more information on the Math Science Team please contact Mrs. Hall at jennifer.hall@gcisd.net or have your student come by room C10.

Below is a description of the four tests

Number Sense
Number Sense involves a 10-minute, 80-question mental math test covering all high school mathematics courses. Shortcuts need to be developed and practiced in order to compete and finish the test.

Science
This contest challenges students to do a wide range of reading in biology, chemistry and physics, to gain an understand
ing of the significance of experiments rather than to recall details, to be alert to new discoveries and information in the areas of science, to gain an understanding of the basic principles as well as knowledge of the history and philosophy of science, and to foster a sense of enthusiasm about how science affects our lives.

Calculator Applications
This contest includes calculations involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, roots, powers, exponential, logarithms, trigonometric functions and inverse trigonometric functions. In addition to straightforward calculation problems, the contest includes geometric and stated problems similar to those found in algebra, geometry and trigonometry textbooks, previous contests and League materials related to the contest.
Mathematics
This contest is designed to test knowledge and understanding in the areas of algebra I and algebra II, geometry, trigonometry, math analysis, analytic geometry, pre-calculus and elementary calculus.
