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.

USAMO Qualifiers:

  • Jay Hashop grade 12 Greenhill School, Addison
  • Brian Ferguson grade  10 Ferguson Homeschool, Dallas
  • Hongzhi Zhao grade 10 Jasper HS, Plano
  • Michael Ma grade 4 Wyatt Elementary, Plano

USAJMO Qualifiers

  • Taeyeon Ham grade 10 Highland Park HS, Dallas
  • James Rowan grade 9 St Mark’s School of Texas, Dallas
  • Andrew Shi grade 10 Clark HS, Plano
  • Kevin Chang grade 9 Jasper HS, Plano
  • Victor Zhou 8 grade Rice MS, Plano

The results of the 2008 AMC 8 contest have been reported.  Many of our Math Circle students participated and distinguished themselves this year.  Several North Texas schools also stood out with the sum of their top 3 scores exceeding 66 (out of 75):

  • Hockaday
  • McLean Middle School (Fort Worth)
  • Rice Middle School (Plano)
  • Robinson Middle School (Plano)
  • St. Mark’s School of Texas
  • Testbrain Prep Center (Coppell)

Unfortunately too many schools still do not offer this important contest.  Please start now to lobby your own school system to not only offer the AMC 8 but to help students prepare for it.

Here is a distribution of scores on the 25 point test.
