Anagha and the Persistent Chickens

Sounds like the name of a rock group, right?

But it's not...the picture above shows Anagha Tolpadi last year working with a group of four wonderful sixth and seventh graders who decided to call themselves "The Persistent Chickens." Persistence and perseverence is the key--and encouragement by mentors like Anagha helps!

All four of the "Persistent Chickens" did very well on the fall middle school math contests and received invitations to join our high school math circle in taking the challenging AMC10 high school contest with us on Wednesday. Congratulations to all of you!

Anagha is now off studying math at Cornell. To the persistent chickens: keep on keeping on....encourage each other and younger students in the way that Anagha encouraged you. The more you help others, the more you will learn yourself.
