Glen Oaks' Student Gives His All at National Math Competition

Piotr Zawislan showed a lot of moxie, a lot of class and he showed scores of people he knows a thing or two about math.
The Glen Oaks' fifth grader recently finished 52 during a national math competition in Chicago recently after defeating nearly 50,000 students from 43 states. Students from across the country competed in the prestigious MathCON event by taking online assessments in algebra, geometry, measurement, data analysis, number systems and pre-calculus.
Piotr did not place in the competition, which was held Saturday at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

MathCON is an academic competition hosted each year in Chicago by Concept Schools. Created in 2008 as a Midwest competition with 125 participants, MathCON has grown into a national event.

The company’s goal is to encourage more students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math outside the classroom and encourage more students to enter the STEM fields, which are currently some of the fastest-growing industries in the United States.
