AAMC team takes 3rd place overall in Princeton U Math Competition A division!
Congratulations to our Albany Area Math Circle and the students who participated at the Princeton University Mathematics Competition (PUMaC) yesterday: the picture above shows team members Wilson Cheung, Matthew Babbitt, Andrew Ardito, Schuyler Smith, Yipu Wang, Dave Bieber, and Gurtej Kanwar. Team member Wyatt Smith is missing from the photo.
The Princeton competition draws participants from all over the country and has been VERY competitive historically. This makes the following excellent individual and team results all the more exciting and fun to announce!
Individual honors went to Schuyler Smith (10th place combinatorics) and Andrew Ardito (4th place number theory, 6th place combinatorics, 5th place overall.)
Team honors were: 4th Place Power Round, 3rd Place Team Round Division A, and 3rd Place Overall Team Division A.
