Six Lawrentians Qualify for American Invitational Math Exam
LawrentiansPraneel Chakraborty ’20, Satvik Dasariraju ’23, Thomas Park ’20, Tristan Wan ’23, Harrison Wang ’20, and Michael Zhang ’21 qualified for the American Invitational Math Exam (AIME). According to mathematics teacher Brent Ferguson, only the top five percent of U.S. students who take the qualifying exam, the American Mathematics Competition, reach the AIME.
“It’s a real honor to qualify,” Ferguson explained.
While their AIME exam scores did not permit them to continue in competition for a spot on the United States Math Olympiad team (one of the students missed by a mere half point!), reaching the AIME level was definitely “something to crow about,” according to Ferguson.
