The Prep School Math Department would like to acknowledge all of the students who participated in MATHCOUNTS and the American Mathematics Competition (AMC) this year. In particular, 8th grader Daniel A. qualified for the Manhattan Chapter MATHCOUNTS competition with a score that placed him in 15th place out of all students in the entire borough (!) and 9th grader Mason S. and 11th grader Noah G. both qualified for American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME) -- the second round of the AMC -- with scores that placed them among the top 3-5% of math students in the country. Congratulations Daniel, Mason and Noah and thank you to all students who participated in this spring's math competitions!
