April 19, 2013, Klamath Falls, Ore. — Oregon Tech hosted the 2013 Oregon Tech Regional Math Contest on April 18, 2013. April is Math Awareness month and this event has been sponsored by the Oregon Tech Mathematics department for over 30 years to raise awareness about mathematics.

This exciting competition brought 248 high school students from all over the Klamath Basin to campus. Eight schools participated this year: EagleRidge, Bonanza, Great Basin Home School, Hosanna, Klamath Union, Mazama, Henley, and Chiloquin. Coaches worked with these students for months in preparation for the competition.

The entire faculty in the Oregon Tech Mathematics department participates in this event by administering tests, judging the competition, and providing administrative support. This year they also provided morning snacks and lunch. The competitions are in: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus with two sets of tests – Oregon Tech and State.
