PUMaC team

I am pleased to announce the eight outstanding students who will represent Albany Area Math Circle at the Princeton University Math Contest (PUMaC) this year:

Matthew Babbitt, heeg
Zubin Mukerjee, Guilderland High School
Wanwan Fei, Emma Willard School
Matt Gu, Guilderland High School
Cecilia Holodak, Niskayuna High School
Preston Law, heeg
Gili Rusak, Shaker High School
Aniket Tolpadi, Niskayuna High School

PUMaC is the most challenging team math competition in which our math circle participates, especially since we compete in the A division, against powerhouse teams from all over the country as well as international teams.  We are glad to have a terrific team of very energetic, experienced, and enthusiastic students.   Collectively, they have a great deal of experience in other challenging math competitions, including AIME, ARML, HMMT, and Math Prize for Girls.

For past PUMaC adventures see these past blog posts:

The official name of our A-division PUMaC team is Albany Area Math Circle-Steinmetz, in honor of Charles Proteus Steinmetz.  You can read more about him in my next post.
