CGCC math contest adds up for area students


More than 200 East Valley ninth- to 12th-grade students recently visited Chandler-Gilbert Community College for its annual Excellence in Mathematics High School Competition.


“It is the hope of the CGCC Mathematics Division to not only help students improve their mathematical skills but also their attitudes toward math,” says Linda Meng, CGCC mathematics faculty member and contest coordinator. “The competition creates a fun environment in which the students can compete alongside their classmates as well as meet and compete against other youth from the East Valley.”


Sponsored by CenturyLink, the Excellence in Mathematics Competition was created by the CGCC Mathematics Division with the intent of supporting the efforts of local community schools in motivating and encouraging today’s youth to be successful in mathematics. Awards were given to the top 10 individuals and top three teams from each level with the highest scores. CGCC is located at 2626 E. Pecos Rd. in Chandler. For more information, call 480-732-7030.


College students save paper


A year-long paper-reduction campaign was recently launched by Maricopa Community Colleges, which includes Chandler-Gilbert Community College, with a goal of cutting paper use by 10 percent.


The organization estimates it uses 620,000 pounds of paper a year, equating to 113,000 reams of paper stacked about 3.5 miles high, making a 10 percent reduction signifi cant. Additional paper reduction activities will be scheduled throughout the year.


Sustainability efforts have been developed across the Maricopa Community Colleges, some of which include trip reduction efforts, recycled waste programs and a pilot program aimed at measuring sustainability outcomes – Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS) – at two colleges.
