The math team competes in the Southestern Massachusetts Mathematics League. Other teams in our division are Cohasset, Hingham, Notre Dame Academy, Scituate, and Weymouth. Every year there are four division meets, playoffs, and the state meet if you qualify. Teams are given the topics ahead of time and have a month to prepare for each meet. There are required practices every week from 2:40-3:20pm. Practices are every Wednesday and league meets are the first Thursday of every month starting in November.
Meets consist of six rounds: arithmetic, algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, and advanced topics, as well as the team round. Each school is represented by 10 students split into two teams of five. Each student must compete in three rounds and each school must enter six students per round. When not competing, students eat pizza and socialize. At the conclusion of the meet winners and high scorers are announced.
Norwell's "Infinitely Radical" team has placed first in their division for five out of the past 6 years. In 2012 the math team placed third at the division playoffs and earned its second consecutive invitation to the state meet. At the state meet, Norwell placed 13th of 15 medium sized schools.
