Oklahoma won three weeks of the weekly Red River Rumble challenges and Texas won one week.  However, Texas students won both Red River Rumble bonus rounds which resulted in a tie!  Here are the details on what happens next:

  • The overall state score at the end of the contest was Oklahoma at 105,000 points and Texas at 105,000 points – it’s a tie and now we are going into OVERTIME!
  • Due to the upcoming Spring Break sessions in Oklahoma and Texas, the states will go head-to-head in a tie breaker round beginning on Monday, March 25th and ending midnight, Thursday, March 28th. TTM students in both states must log in and complete and pass more lessons than the other state to be named the winner!
  • You have one final chance to take your state to the top! Good Luck!!
  • Overtime Round Rules and Regulations:
  • The overtime score will be the sum of the Average Lessons Passed per Student and the Average Lessons Completed per Student for the top 10% of classes in each state during the overtime period. The final score will determine the overall state winner.
  • A class may compete with a minimum of 15 students (based on the current class enrollment) and a maximum of 50 per class.
  • Students and/or teachers found to be engaging in any sort of activity designed to circumvent normal usage of Think Through Math may be disqualified from the overtime round. This includes, but is not limited to:
  • Continually re-enrolling in coursework far below students’ ability levels. Note: A student may only be reenrolled in the same pathway two times in the Overtime round.
  • Cheating or “gaming” the program in an attempt to earn more points than is possible by normal usage of Think Through Math.
  • Moving individuals or groups of students from multiple classes into a newly formed class solely for the purpose of competing in the contest.

Go TEXAS!
