The Texas Math and Science Coaches' Association is an organization dedicated to improving and accelerating young minds through math and science competition. The academic meets are held throughout the year offering tests in number sense, calculator applications, mathematics, and science. It is a great way to improve your academic teams for UIL competition in the spring. You are not limited to the number of students that can compete like you are in UIL. This is a great way to get a lot of kids involved in academics!
At Muenster High School we set up certain guidelines that must be followed before one can compete at the state level. The students must attend at least three meets, and meet a qualifying score in at least two of the four areas. In addition to this, they must clock in at least 12 hours, with at least 6 in two events.
When a student qualifies for state, during their senior year they are eligible for a a scholarship. Therefore all seniors must compete in all four events. How they place at state ranks them for the top gun position. The top six seniors will be awarded scholarships ranging from $600 to $1100!
TMSCA enhances their classroom work and helps them in rigorous test taking situations such as TAKS, PSAT, SAT/ACT, or any AP tests. Coaches for the subjects are as follows:
Danna Hess-coordinator, number sense, and mathematics coach
Nancy Perryman & Molly Sicking-science coaches
Carolyn Lutkenhaus-calculator coach
