Metroplex Math Circle would like to add our congratulations to the US team that competed at the 4th Annual Romanian Masters in Mathematics & Science competition:

The RMMS 2011, was held in Bucharest, Romania from February 23rd to February 28th, 2011.  The team of six high school students selected by the MAA’s American Mathematics Competitions program to represent the USA in this invitational Olympiad-style problem –solving contest was

  • Michael Druggan, 12th grade, Tates Creek Senior High School, Lexington, KY
  • Zijing Gao, 10th grade, Homeschooled, Chapel Hill, NC
  • Mitchell Lee, 11th grade, Thomas Jefferson High School, Alexandria, VA
  • Bobby Shen, 10th grade, Dulles High School, Sugar Land, TX
  • Victor Wang, 10th grade, Laude Horton Watkins HS, St. Louis, MO
  • Joy (Shijie) Zheng, 12th grade, Philips Exeter Academy, Exeter, NH

Bobby Shen and Mitchell Lee each won a gold medal, and Michael Druggan won a bronze medal in the competition.  Bobby Shen had the second highest score in the competition, and Mitchell Lee was the third highest score overall. The USA was the only country to win two gold medals, and the combined total of the top three finishers was enough to make the USA the overall team winner. This entitles the team to bring home in 2011 the traveling trophy inscribed with the names of the winning countries.  A total of 90 students in 15 teams of 6 from 13 countries competed. Joy Zheng and Victor Wang each received an honorable mention for a complete solution of the fourth problem.

This is the third year that the MAA has sponsored a team at the RMMS. The team was selected on the basis of their scores in the 2010 AMC competitions, the USAMO, and their performance at last summer’s Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program. All problems, solutions, competitors, and results and scores are on the RMMS website at http://rmms.lbi.ro
