AMC recently announced the students invited to sit for the USA Mathematical Olympiad. This is a tremendous accomplishment following exemplary performance on the AMC 10 or 12 and a high score on the AIME. The qualifiers from Texas are:
Every student representing Texas at the USAMO deserves to be very proud. However, Metroplex Math Circle is particularly proud that one of our most regular attendees is by far the youngest student on the national list.
Michael Ma, as a fourth grader received a perfect score on the AMC 10 and followed it up with a performance on the AIME that is beyond all but the best high school students. MMC cannot claim the credit for this terrific success (that belongs to Michael and his family) but Michael does exemplify the hard work and talent that Dr. Andreescu seeks to identify and encourage.
Please join us in congratulating Michael on his continued success.
