The Roundup is the Jesuit Dallas Student Voice and Newspaper since 1942. Learn about us.

Many of us take AP tests in the Spring, but what we all worry about is studying for the test, and eventually taking it. However, we often ignore or take for granted what happens after we take the daunting test. Well, luckily, we have our very own AP grader here at Jesuit: Mr. Dondis. I recently interviewed him to...
Statistics is everywhere; we just don’t always make an effort to recognize it. Here at Jesuit, the faculty and staff make sure to show their students how statistics in the classroom translates to real world applications. On September 25th-28th, the Jesuit Statistics course took a trip to the Goshute Mountains, about twenty-three miles south of Wendover, Nevada. There, Mrs. Mattacchione and...
During each period of the day, students file into Hughes Hall, the lecture hall, or the Terry Center, anticipating what kind of presentation they will see next. With the variety of Pi Day presentations, each with their own distinct topic and personality, students never know what to expect. On March 6th, 2015, students and faculty were given the opportunity to learn...

Students file into the Terry Center, quickly sitting at the round tables that fill the room, eagerly wondering about the topic of the impending presentation. Each period of the day hosts a unique presentation, which never fails to surprise and entice the audience. On March 18th, students and faculty members alike celebrated arguably the most important mathematical day of the year,...
Have you ever wondered just how perfect you are? Many students found out on November 23, "Fibonacci Day." Jesuit students could participate in a variety of activities pertaining to Leonardo Pisano's sequence of numbers. The event was organized by Mu Alpha Theta, Jesuit's math club, commemorating Pisano's sequence of numbers on 11/23 because those are its first 4 terms in the sequence. "The...
As students from all grade levels cluster together in the B-hallway with merely a pencil and a calculator, Mr. Billingham, calculus and trigonometry teacher at Jesuit, attempts to direct the bulk of students from all grade levels who hope to take the TXML Contest. The Texas Math League Contest, or TXML contest, is a 6-question mathematics exam distributed every two...
Students fill Hughes Hall and sit shoulder to shoulder on the rustic brown steps as they listen to one of the many Pi Day presentations. On the day before Spring Break, Friday, March 7, Jesuit students experienced a Pi day that was very different from the expected all day event in the Terry Center. This year, in contrast to previous years,...
