WINNERS OF THE AMC8 MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH COMPETITION HOSTED BY MENDOCINO COLLEGE
Official results from the AMC8 Middle School Math Competition hosted by Mendocino College have been announced. Eighteen students in the 4th through 8th grades participated in the competition, held on November 13th. Participating schools were Redwood Academy of Ukiah, River Oak Charter School, and Cogito Academy (a homeschool).
The results were tabulated by American Mathematics Competition, a program of the Mathematical Association of America. The students were placed into two groups with students from each school in both groups. The overall winner for the Mendocino College competition and recipient of a gold award was Jeffae Schroff, a 10-year-old from Cogito Academy who received 21 of the possible 25 points. In addition to taking the top spot, Jeffae placed on the achievement roll for 6th grade students scoring above 15 points, as well as the honor roll for being in the top 5% of scores (18 points and above). Other winners are Jerrae Schroff (gold, achievement roll, Cogito Academy, age 9); Amelia Robinson (silver, River Oak Charter, age 12); Telfer Hendrik (silver, River Oak Charter, age 11); Thomas Holly-Atkinson (silver, River Oak Charter, age 12); Jettae Schroff (bronze, Cogito Academy, age 9); Sophia Barrett (bronze, River Oak Charter, age 12); and Gracianne Kirsch (bronze, River Oak Charter, age 12).
Mendocino College congratulates all of the winners and participants of the AMC8 competition. Official awards for the winners (pins and certificates) will be distributed to the students once they are received by Mendocino College.
Mendocino College will be hosting the AMC10 competition on February 5th, 2013. The AMC10 covers mathematics normally associated with grades 9 and 10. The contest is intended for everyone from the average student at a typical school who enjoys mathematics to the very best student at the most challenging of schools. The AMC 10 is the first in the series of competitions leading to the USA Team at the International Mathematical Olympiad. Students who rank in the top 25% nationally will qualify for the American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME). The USA Mathematical Olympiad and the USA Junior Mathematical Olympiad qualifiers are selected from the top performing students on the AIME.
Students interested in participating in the AMC10 competition may pick up registration forms from their schools or may request the form by e-mail by contacting Leslie Banta at firstname.lastname@example.org.
