This April, 119 ASH middle school students competed in the annual spring Noetic Learning Math Contest! This year was unprecedented, in that the students competed from their homes. The goal of this competition is to encourage students' interest in math, to develop their problem solving skills, and to inspire them to excel in math.
More than 14,500 students representing 467 schools across the United States as well as various international schools were still able to take part virtually in this spring’s contest.
ASH had two teams per grade and the following students are our team winners:
- Grade 5: Katherine L. and Joseph K.
- Grade 6: Pranav G. and Nandita V. (grade 5 student)
- Grade 7: A tie between Eskil F. and Zackary B. (grade 5 student), and Franceso S.
- Grade 8: Minsu C., and a tie between Katharina J., Taymur F., Gaspard S. and Adam B.
The following students won the National Honor Roll title. This title is awarded to the top 10 percent of participating mathletes.
- Eskil F.
- Zackary B.
- Francesco S.
- Nicholas T.
All of these students will be receiving medals.
In addition, 35 ASH students received National Honorable mention. This title is awarded to the top 50 percent of participating mathletes in each grade. These students will receive Honorable Mention certificates.
Finally, for the first time in ASH history, one of our teams earned the Team Achievement award! This award is given to the top 10 percent of scoring teams (based on the sum of the top six scores). ASH will get a plaque, thanks to the high scores of: Eskil F., Zackary B., Emir D., Charlie A., Griffin D., and the tie between Theo C. and Iris F.
Congratulations to all the participants! The contest results demonstrate our students’ great problem solving skills and math talents. They also show that our students can rise to the occasion even in challenging circumstances.
