    (St. George, UT) - Dixie State College of Utah will host its annual MathCounts competition, featuring entrants from middle and junior high schools throughout southwestern Utah, on Friday, February 4, in room 127 of DSC’s North Instructional Building (NIB).

    According to DSC Mathematics Department Chair Scott Mortensen, more than 100 students from St. George, Enterprise, Kanab and Beaver will participate in this year’s competition. The competition features individual and team testing events, which will be corrected and judged by DSC upper division math students.

    This year’s competition has special significance due to the recent announcement that Dixie State received Utah State Board of Regents approval to offer two new four-year degree programs in mathematics and mathematics education. The addition of the two baccalaureate degrees, DSC’s 17th and 18th four-year degrees overall, continues the College’s progression toward fulfilling its mission to offer core, foundational and high demand educational opportunities consistent with four-year colleges. Class work is currently underway and the DSC officials anticipate graduating students in both programs this May.

    For more information on the 2011 MathCounts competition, contact Sylvia Bradshaw in the DSC Mathematics Department at (435) 652-7984.
