Ryoo '14 qualifies for US Junior Mathematics Olympiad
Ji Won Ryoo '14 has officially qualified for the United States Junior Mathematics Olympiad, one of just 230 students selected to participate in the nation. Her selection comes on the heels of a perfect score on the American Mathematics Competition 10 (AMC10A) exam. Just 10 students out of nearly 71,000 that took the AMC10 test were able to accomplish this feat.
The USA Junior Mathematics Olympiad is a test of both mathematic prowess and endurance. The exam will have 6 problems and be administered over 2 days. All six problems on the USA Junior Mathematical Olympiad will require written answers, perhaps a detailed algebraic, number theoretic, combinatoric or geometric solution rather than a proof in mathematical format, and problems will be graded on a rigorous 7 point scale (42 points total).
