Students Qualify for the American Invitational Mathematics Exam

Spring Valley High School is proud to announce 3 students who have qualified for the AIME in hopes of advancing to the USAMO exam.  

1.  Richard Chen  (AMC 10 School Winner) 
2.  David Qu (AMC 12 School Winner) 
3.  Gregory Rassolov

On February 5th, registered students competed in the American Math Contest 10/12 which is a 75-minutes rigorous battery of 25 questions ranging from Algebra to Precalculus concepts at the advanced levels.  The assessment is an annual contest sponsored by the Mathematics Association of  America.  Students who take the AMC 10 are usually freshman and sophomores.  AMC 12 are usually juniors and seniors.  Students who score at  least an 88.5 on the AMC 12A or 108.0 on the AMC 10A, qualify for competing on the next level, American Invitational Mathematics Exam (AIME) on March 14, 2013.  The AIME is intended to provide further challenge and recognition, beyond that provided by the AMC 10 or AMC 12, to the many high school students in North America who have exceptional mathematical ability. The top scoring U. S. citizens and students legally residing in the United States and Canada (with qualifying scores, based on a weighted average) are invited to take the United States of American Mathematics Olympiad (USAMO).  

These students have spent numerous hours independently and at Math Team practice preparing for the ultimate challenge and has been successful at this rigorous challenge.  These students will be recognized at the Annual Awards Program in May for their achievement.  Congratulations to these Viking Math Students!
