Congratulations to William Hoover (10th), Avery Long (11th), Steven Raphael (11th), and Lilly Richards (10th) who have advanced to the second round of the Michigan Math Prize Competition. Over 5000 Michigan high school students took Part 1 of the exam in October. 1000 of the highest-scoring students were invited to take Part II of the exam, to be given on December 5th. 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 next March. Approximately $20,000 in scholarships will be awarded.
The Michigan Mathematics Prize Competition is sponsored by the Michigan Section of the Mathematical Association of America to encourage students to develop their interests and abilities in Mathematics.
