Omaha – More than 400 students from the Omaha area will be on the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) campus this Friday, April 11, to cheer on 32 of their classmates as they compete in UNO’s second annual UNO Calculus Bee.
Two groups of 16 students each will compete against each other in live head-to-head match-ups to determine the Calculus Bee’s overall winner. There are 20 schools that will be represented at this year’s competition.
Students were selected from over 550 original entrants who each completed an entrance exam in order to compete.
Before and after the Calculus Bee, UNO will also host performances of “Calculus: The Musical,” a comedic musical performance about one of math’s toughest subjects.
The show is a traveling performance piece put on by MATHEATER, which is part of the Know Theatre of Cincinnati.
There will be three showings of “Calculus: The Musical” at UNO, both held in CPACS Room 101. The show times are 8:30 a.m., 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Each showing should last approximately one hour.
For questions, please contact Charley Reed, UNO media relations coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 402.554.2129.
