Math Clubs & Contests are in Full Swing!

AYJ Math Club has continued to do an exceptional job in preparing students for national level math contests in Canada and the USA. This year, we had two students who qualified for the Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO) Qualifying Repêchage, and three students who made it to the American Invitational Math Exam (AIME). One of the students achieved an exceptional 129 point (out of 150) score in the American Math Competition 12 (the qualifying round for the AIME) which puts him in the top 1% worldwide. Many AYJ students will also be writing the University of Waterloo's Pascal, Cayley and Fermat Contests on February 23, the Euclid Contest on April 5, and the Fryer, Galois and Hypatia Contests on April 12. We wish them luck in these prestigious contests.
