The detailed score break down has been published for the 2010 AMC 8. Congratulations to all of the participants from Texas.
But these good results are accompanied by a distressingly low level of participation. In Texas only 90 schools participated with slightly over 4,000 students. This is only about one fourth the participation by students in California and one third the participation from China (not including Hong Kong).
If Texas wants to serve its children in the global, information economy, it needs to prepare and allow more of them to compete internationally.
