For the fourth season in a row, the 2014-15 Fairfield Prep Trig*Star team won the State Championship. Haoxiang Zhang ’18 took first place overall. He will now represent the entire State of Connecticut in the National Trig*Star Exam in June. Congratulations to all the members of the Trig*Star team on their Fourth State Championship in a row.

Prep’s Trig*Star team is sponsored by Readniss and Mead. It is moderated by Ms. Maureen Bohan and Mrs. Katherine Brennan and Jorge Pereira, a senior Surveyor at Readniss and Mead. The team meets monthly to practice trigonometry problems and prepare for the Trig*Star State Exam. The Trig*Star State Exam is an annual high school mathematics competition based on the practical application of Trigonometry. Students that participate are not only provided with an opportunity to earn awards, but also leave with a better understanding of the technical profession of Geomatics, which includes Land Surveying, Mapping and Planning.

Meetings are open to all Prep students and are held on the second Thursday of every month in Mrs. Brennan’s room, X305. Meetings will begin again in the Fall.
