State Math Tournament Winners
Congratulations Cambridge Math Team
 
Congratulations to the Cambridge Math team who won the Class AAAAA championship in the 40th annual state mathematics tournament. Team members  Benjamin Lapid, Parth Kumar, Blake Quigley, and Cameron Chong (photo, L to R) were coached by Cambridge High School mathematics teacher David Pomerance photo, far left).

At the state competition students compete individually in a 50-question multiple-choice test and a speed round followed by teams working together to complete a set of a dozen challenging problems.  The questions came from topics included in the standard high school curriculum up to and including calculus, as well as topics not traditionally found in the curriculum, such as number theory and combinatorics.  

At the conclusion of the state tournament, the students selected for the All-State Math Team were announced.  Cambridge student Parth Kumar was selected for this team. This team will represent the state of Georgia at the nation-wide American Regions Math League (ARML) tournament on June 4, 2016.
2016 Keizai Koho Center Teacher Fellowship
Mr. Wallace
Cambridge AP Economics teacher Brian Wallace was awarded a 2016 Keizai Koho Center Teacher Fellowship to travel and study in Japan from June 27th to July 6th, this summer. Mr. Wallace was one of only ten teachers selected nationally for this fully-funded fellowship and the only teacher selected from Georgia. Through this program, fellows will have the opportunity to learn about the Japanese economy, various businesses, and contemporary Japanese society, as well as participate in roundtable discussions with educators and business leaders during a ten-day stay in Japan.

Highlights of the fellowship include visits to Japanese schools, major companies, and industrial facilities. In addition, home stay and sightseeing excursions are planned to allow the fellows to learn about Japanese culture and society.

The Keizai Koho Center (KKC) is an independent, nonprofit organization affiliated with Keidanren (Japan Business Federation). Established in 1978, Keizai Koho Center has served as a platform for the Japanese business community to interact with key stakeholders inside and outside of Japan. Inquiries regarding the 2016 KKC Fellowship may be directed to Katsuko Shellhammer at kkcfellowship@us-japan.org.
