Math Team is formed from students at freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior level classes. These students are selected based on their academic and, especially, mathematics ability. This team completes at several levels: Catholic League Math South, Regional, and Illinois State. The Brother Rice team has done exceptionally well over the years. For example, this team placed first in the region and the whole team qualified to compete at the state level in 2006. The team competes at each class level by topic as well as team, e.g. Algebra 1, calculator, etc. The math team coaches are teachers at Brother Rice who provide guidance, technical expertise, and problem solving strategies to the students in order to be competitive and successful. The team meets on a regular basis for practice.
