Five students to take national math examFriday, March 11, 2005 By Rachel Reeves
This year five juniors and seniors were invited to take the American Invitational Math Exam (AIME) on account of their American Math Competition (AMC) 12 scores, as opposed to last year’s two invitees. On Feb. 16, 43 students took the AMC 12, the first in a series of exams that will eventually send six winners to compete on the International Mathematics Olympiad team. Five will move to the next round: seniors Chloe Siu and Greg Herschler and juniors Logan Gantner, Sung Jun Min and Genevieve Williams. The AIME will be held March 8 and will determine which students move on to the third round. Those who aren’t eliminated will attend a summer program on a university campus, and, of these students, six will be chosen to compete on the Olympiad team. “It’s impressive that we have such talented students who, even as juniors, can do well on such a challenging exam,” math teacher Tim Baumgartner said.
