Mr. Moss

Have you ever wanted to design a roller coaster?  Ms. Hammari's classes recently put their knoweldge of potential and kinetic energy to the test designing the most extreme roller coasters possible.  Instead of metal and wheels the students used tubing and a ball bearing to test their designs.  Their goal was to get the ball bearing to the end of the "roller coaster" using the force of gravity and fighting the effect of friction.  We are so proud of our students and the creativity they demonstrate through all their projects here at MJHS!

American Mathematics Competition 8

“It’s early in the season, but Mapleton Junior High Mathletes are already bringing home awards.  In the first challenge of the season, the American Mathematics Competition 8 (AMC 8), 14 students on MJHS MathTeam were among nearly 100,000 middle schoolers across the nation to compete in a 25 question, 40 minute problem solving contest.  Our team, consisting of the three highest scores from the school, posted a team score of 58 (out of 75), which was enough to earn the School Merit Roll award, the second highest school award available.  Eighth grader, Tyler Jackson, lead the way with 24 of 25, and a spot on the Distinguished Honor Roll, an honor reserved for the top 1% of all students.  Eighth grader, Morgan Boring also contributed a respectable 20 of 25 and made the Honor Roll representing the top 5% of all students.  Other students competing were 8th graders Owen Memmott, Joshua Jackson, Jared Hardy, Jay Griggs, Miles Hancock, and Morgan Honsvick, and 7th graders Daniel Christiansen, Parker Jones, Spencer Smith, David Halverson, Benjamin Jensen, and Darin Briggs.

With these results, MJHS MathTeam ranks 4th among all Utah Junior High Schools and 1st in Utah County.  We also have 2 students in the top 10 individually in the state.  Next up, the MathTeam will have a smaller contingency compete in the AMC 10 on January 30th, as the rest of the team prepares for the MathCounts Chapter contest on February 1st.”

Magical Staircase Goal Challenge Winners!

Mr. Moss

Rachel Johnston and Ava Clanton participated and won our recent magical staircase goal challenge.  All our students here at MJHS were challenged to think of a large goal they had set for themselves for the new year and then break that goal down into smaller "steps" that they could use to reach their overall larger goal (hence the magical staircase).  We had over 70 students participate in the challenge and Rachel and Ava won a custom MJHS beanie and a treat when their names were randomly drawn from the group of participants in the challenge.  We look forward to a great second semester and great 2020 here at MJHS where students are setting and working hard towards their goals.  Go MUSTANGS!
