Are You Smarter Than A Mathlete?

This month, four students from St. Mary's school travelled to Norway to represent the United States in the International Maths Quest Competition. For the second year in a row, these math whizzes brought home the first place trophy, and today, our Good Day LA anchors are putting their smarts to the test with a math competition of our own!


Coach and St. Mary's School Teacher Nancy Qushair was on Good Day LA with students Daniel Palfi, Leyton Breeese, Amelia Kang, and Kendrick Choi.
