The 2012 Challenge-24 Mathematics Contest was held on Saturday, March 17, at St. Bonaventure University. The contest, hosted each year by the Department of Mathematics, was directed by Dr. Doug Cashing.
There were 61 students from 12 schools that attended this year. The participating schools were: Austin Area Schools, Cuba Elementary, Cuba-Rushford Middle School, Franklinville, Friendship, Hinsdale, two Olean elementary schools (Boardmanville and East View), Olean Middle School, Otto-Eldred Elementary School, Otto-Eldred Middle School, and The Learning Center in Bradford.
Challenge-24 is a game in which contestants are presented with four numbers between one and nine. The object is to combine the numbers, using each number exactly once, to produce an answer of 24. Any of the standard arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division) may be used as needed, perhaps more than once, to get the result.
Medals were awarded to the first-, second-, and third-place students at each grade. They were: 3rd grade
