American Mathematical Competition Results:
Campus took the AMC8 competition test (which is a 25 question multiple-choice in 40 minutes test given nationally on the same day) back in the beginning of November. We just got our results last night.
We had 3 students place in the top 1% Nationally! They received what’s called the Honor Roll of Distinction. They are 7th grader Srinivas Arun, 8th grader Charlie Flaxbeard, and 6th grader Ethan Lou. WOW!
We also had an additional 5 students place in the top 5% Nationally! They receive the Honor Roll Certificate. They are 7th graders Toby Shu and Jayden Wang, and 8thGraders Catherine Yu, Mikael Miao, and Eric Zhang.
Ethan Lou also received a special award for being a 6th grader scoring 15 or more points – he receives the Certificate of Achievement.
Finally, we played host to 7 - 4th and 5th graders who wished to take the exam. (6 from Cottonwood thanks to Amy Bainbridge and 1 from Peakview by parent request).
5th Grader Shruti Arun (little sister to Srinivas) placed in the top 5% nationally and also received the Certificate of Achievement for scoring 15 or more points. WOW!!
