Our Mathletes dominated the NSML Conference Meet, placing 1st in the Division for Freshman, Sophomore, and Senior teams, 2nd in the Division for our Junior and Oralist teams, and 1st in the Division as an Overall Team. Senior, Ari Nathanson, also was a recipient of the John Benson Award. Way to go, HP Mathletes!
Welcome and Overview
Welcome to Math Team!
Do you like puzzles? Do you like applying prior knowledge to new concepts? Math Team is an opportunity for students to explore and compete in areas of mathematics that are not covered in regular classes. Our Mathletes are collaborative, curious, and competitive. We work together to explore non-traditional math problems that intrigue and stretch our minds. HPHS Mathletes compete against 55 other schools in the North Suburban Math League, and meet other students who are enthusiastic about mathematics. Please send Mrs. Gapinski and Mr. Hagberg an email if you are interested in joining!

Ms. Dicker: This is Ms. Dicker's 33rd year teaching math and her 20th year at HPHS. This is currently her 5th year as a Math Team coach for HPHS. "I really enjoy coaching our Mathletes because it brings me joy to work with students who truly love the challenge of exploring new mathematical problems and concepts outside of their math classes. It has been really exciting to watch the program grow and see the team's increased success."
Mrs. Gapinski: This is Mrs. Gapinski's 2nd year coaching Math Team. "I love the camaraderie between the Mathletes at practices and on the bus. I especially love the excitement, laughter and overall enthusiasm by our Mathletes when they learn a new concept beyond the traditional mathematics curriculum and are able to problem-solve critically on individual contests or collectively on an 8-person team."
Mr. Hagberg: This is Mr. Hagberg's 3rd year teaching and his 2nd year coaching Math Team. "My favorite thing about coaching Math Team is seeing and hearing all of our Mathletes work together, share ideas, and challenge one another. Even when preparing for the Individual contests, Mathletes collaborate, build each other up, and support one another. Because of this, all successes are shared amongst every member of the team."
