Math Club Competes in International Challenge at Princeton University

On April 1, members of Lawrenceville’s Math Club took a quick trip up Rte. 206 to compete in the 17th annual Princeton University Mathematics Competition (PUMaC). Run by the Princeton Math Club, PUMaC welcomes participants from all over the U.S. and various international teams to the University to spend the day taking various mathematics assessment tests and having fun.

Lawrenceville mathematicians were selected based upon a qualifying test created by Satvik Dasariraju ’23, who represented the School along with Tristan Wan ’23, Alec Wang ’24, and Second Formers Anthony Woo, Alice Xie, Kevin Xu, Gloria Yu, and Ethan Zhu. In the week before the contest, according to math teacher Anton Fleissner, students participated in a "power round" in which they collectively wrote justifications on the topic of principal ideal domains. During PUMaC, contestants were tested in algebra, combinatorics, geometry, and number theory.

Congratulations are due to Wan and Yu for qualifying for the individual finals last Saturday based on their individual scores. Yu earned fifth place in the geometry contest.
