Our MMC regulars: Vinjai Vale, Michael Ma and Jeffrey Huang continued their success this weekend in Austin at the State MATHCOUNTS competition. Jeffrey came in first, Michael received second and Vinjai received 7th place all in their first year of eligibility! Michael and Jeffrey will now represent Texas at nationals! Please join us in congratulating the boys by liking this post.
Top 3 team round schools: 1st place, Ft. Settlement Middle school from Sugarland, 2nd – Rice Middle school and 3rd – Harmony School of Excellence from Houston.
The Preston Trail Chapter MATHCOUNTS competition was held at UT Dallas today. We would like to congratulate all of the participants but especially the three winners of the Countdown round who are all regular Metroplex Math Circle attendees:
Best of luck at the state competition in Austin!
The American Mathematics Contest (AMC) is an extremely important contest for any students interested in pursuing a STEM education and career. Many of the elite universities use AMC scores to sort out the many applicants who easily achieve 800 SAT math scores.
Our Metroplex Math Circle students are particularly fortunate to have access to Dr. Titu Andreescu as they prepare themselves to take the test. Dr. Andreescu was the director of the AMC and coach of the US International Mathematical Olympiad team, whose members are selected from among the very best performers in the AMC, AIME and USAMO sequence of contests.
Students should make sure that their schools are offering the A version of the AMC 10 and 12 tests on February 7th. For those students who do not have access to the test at their school or who are homeschooled, Dr. Andreescu will be offering the test at UT Dallas on February 22, 2012. Please leave a comment below if you would like to register to take the test at UT Dallas so we can order sufficient tests.
The “10″ and “12″ refer to the maximum grade in which the test may be taken, however, there is no lower limit on the age of the participant. Many of our younger students take it with the goal of improving their performance each year and identifying areas to focus their studies. One extraordinary elementary student, under Dr. Andreescu’s tutelage, even achieved a perfect score on the AMC 10!

Congratulations to the many students in Texas who took the 2011 AMC 8. We would like to especially recognize those Texas students in sixth grade or below who scored above a 23 on this challenging 25 point test. Many of these students are regular attendees of the Metroplex Math Circle:

Well, Texas didn’t have anyone with a top 12 position in the 2010 USAMO or an Honorable Mention (more reason to get our students involved in math circle earlier and take advantage of the other great resources we have in the Dallas area). We were proud, however of the students, who did qualify for the USAMO in north Texas, many of whom have honed their skills at the Metroplex Math Circle and are young enough to compete in many future Olympiads.
I’m very proud to post 3 new testimonials from some of our most accomplished math circle participants:
I’d like to thank Dr. Andreescu…for [his] time and efforts that made MMC such a wonderful experience for me. I have attended MMC since 2nd grade. I enjoyed the various lectures, learned a lot from the math professors that visited our circle and benefited from their insight into the world of math. I hope this program will continue.
-Michael Ma, 4th grade [Ed. In 2009 Michael had the unprecedented accomplishment of scoring a perfect AMC 10 and qualifying for the USAMO as a third grader.]
I have been attending the Metroplex Math Circle for a couple of years, and I think it is definetely worth my time. Dr. Andreescu gets amazing speakers with interesting topics to come educate us. I think this is a great program, and I hope it continues to attract new participants.
-Victor Zhou, 8th grade [Ed. In 2010 Victor astounded the audience, including Governor Rick Perry, by winning 5 countdown rounds in a row at the Texas state MATHCOUNTS competition.]
After having attending for a few years, I believe that the Metroplex Math Circle program has helped me much in my mathematical studies. The brilliant guest speakers and, of course, Dr. Andreescu, give great lectures in a way that is extremely helpful and also enjoyable to students like myself. I have thoroughly enjoyed the MMC experience and have also learned a lot.
-Robert Tung, 8th grade [Ed. In 2010 Robert was selected to represent Texas at the national MATHCOUNTS competition.]
