On behalf of the Math Department, I would like to acknowledge those students who took the AMC 10 and 12 Exam in the fall. Dvita Bhattacharya, Elle Dambrot, Colette Gentile, Angela Hong, Roshni Kopparapu, Kay Lyon, Cassie Miller, Seema Parmar, Ishani Wadhwa, Caitlin Williams, Maya Yie, Cypress Zeiner-Morrish, Miranda Wang. Miranda also earned a certificate of distinction and a qualification for the AIME because her score placed her in the top 2.5% of all scores on the exam nationwide. Congratulations to all those who participated this year!
A Black History Month author challenge will be on my classroom windows during this whole month. Each day I will put up a picture of a black author who is either female, nonbinary, or trans. Please come in and take a guess and I will give you a stamp on ‘passports’ I will be giving out. The answers will be released the day after the picture is posted.
