Perfect 100% on Trig-Alta Challenge

Gina Ge of Edmonton’s Jasper Place High School is the inaugural winner of the Trig-Alta Challenge, a survey-themed math contest developed jointly by experienced math teachers and Alberta Land Surveyors showing how, in a real-world setting, Alberta Land Surveyors use math everyday.

Gina scored a perfect 100% on the Trig-Alta Challenge. Gina’s classmate, Wendy Laio, tied for second with a score or 97%. Luke Wrubleski of Leduc Composite and Jonathan Ma of Centennial High School also scored 97%. Six of the top 11 students were from Calgary’s Centennial High School.

Some 454 Alberta students from 29 Alberta high schools took the Trig-Alta Challenge. 

“Congratulations to all students who wrote the Trig-Alta Challenge,” said Bob Wallace, president of the Alberta Land Surveyors’ Association. “This was an opportunity for Alberta students to find out if they might have what it takes to follow in the footsteps of legendary explorer and surveyor David Thompson.”
