Congratulations to William Hoover (8th), Phillip Popp (11th), Steven Raphael (9th), Carter Wade (11th), and Grant Walker (11th) who have advanced to the second round of the Michigan Math Prize Competition. Out of 6,000 students taking the exam, 1,000 participants were invited to take Part II which will be on December 7th. Students will work on five challenging problems and write their solutions providing full justification and proof of their claims.
The students with the top 100 scores in the two parts of the competition are honored at an awards program. Approximately $20,000 in scholarships will be awarded.
The Michigan Mathematics Prize Competition (MMPC) is sponsored by the Michigan Section of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) to encourage students to develop their interests and abilities in mathematics.
Good luck to William, Phillip, Steven, Carter and Grant!
