The Trig*Star Contest is an annual high school mathematics competition offered at ECHS during the month of April. The competition is open to any interested student who has studied Trigonometry. The one hour contest is based on the practical application of Trigonometry and is composed of several Trig problems and one trig and surveying problem. If more than one student has the same high score, then the student who completes the test in the shortest time is the winner. The winner at the high school level proceeds to state and then national level. ECHS has had 4 students to compete in the national level.
This year Ethan Vander Molen was the ECHS TRIG*STAR winner and proceeded to the state level where he came in 3rd. Ethan, a junior this year, presently is taking calculus at ECHS. Congrats, Ethan, on this big accomplishment!
