Thu Hoang ‘23 excelled in this year’s American Mathematics Competition (AMC) finishing as Marianapolis’ first place scorer -- in addition to scoring in the top 5% of all AMC participants nationally. Thu’s stellar performance qualified her to advance to the next round of the AMC Olympiad, The American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME).
During the AIME, Thu will face off against fellow top performers in a challenging 15 question, 3 hour examination. Top scorers on the AIME are invited to the United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO) or the United States of America Junior Mathematical Olympiad (USAJMO).
Fabian Gabriel ‘21 and Wenyang (Mike) Yuan ‘21 finished as Marianapolis’ second and third place scorers, respectively.
The American Mathematics Competitions is a national program sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). The program provides access to educational resources and includes a series of contests aimed at fostering an appreciation for mathematics and sharpening students’ analytical skills in the classroom and beyond. Since its first contests in 1950, AMC’s programming has grown considerably, with over 300,000 students now participating annually.
In another impressive performance, Thu's score on the American Regions Mathematics League (ARML) Qualification Test earned her an invitation to join Connecticut's team and participate in the ARML virtual competition in early June.
The Marianapolis community congratulates all students who participated in this year’s contests and wishes Thu the very best of luck in her upcoming competitions.
