The scores from the Mathematics Association of America’s American Mathematics Competition (MAA AMC) are in and Grier is ecstatic to announce that four of our #GrierGirls had top scores! April H. and Cindy W. were the top two scorers on the AMC 10, while Amy T. and Quin N. were the top two scorers for the AMC 12. Congratulations to April, Cindy, Amy, and Quin, and to everyone who competed in the event.
As described previously, twenty-four Grier students competed in the MAA AMC last month. The students could choose between two tests of math ability based on their grade level. According to the MAA AMC website, both the 10th and 12th grade exams include 25 multiple choice questions to be answered in 75 minutes.
The secondary school competitions are held on the same two days at locations across the nation. The Grier students traveled by school bus to Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania to compete and learn from math educators affiliated with the college. These tests are the first in a series of competitions that culminate in the International Mathematical Olympiad.
