The Pythagorean Award at Mabry
Dr. Tyson began the Pythagorean Award at Mabry during the 2002 - 2003 school year to recognize the highest math achievement at our school. The trophy itself, pictured to the left, is an original work commissioned by the renouned Hans Gobo Fräbel studios. The giant "greater than" mathematical symbol reads, "Math Achievement: We're greater than!" and holds the name of each year's winner.
Our math students in 8th grade are invited to come to school early to take a very difficult math test. The top three winning students then compete in front of their entire 8th grade class solving math problems based on time and accuracy. The winning student receives a Pythagorean Award Plaque and this highest math honor at Mabry.
Additionally, we host this podcast, which you can view in your browser window, of the three bright young finalists in the 2007 competition: Emily, Eli, and Conrad. You may also download the podcast at this link or visit Podcast Central. The winner of the 2007 Pythagorean Award is Conrad. Congratulations!
