Georgia Tech High School Mathematics Competition

Thanks to the hard work of several School of Mathematics graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, staff and faculty, the High School Mathematics competition was a huge success, with more than 400 students participating in the event.

This annual competition covers a wide range of topics, including algebra, Euclidean geometry, combinatorics, number theory, and calculus. Schools from any state are welcome to compete, and schools may register up to five teams with up to five contestants per team.

Special thanks to the organizing committee: Sharon McDowell, Annette Rohrs, Eric Sabo, Elizabeth (Betsie) Last, Chi Ho Yuen, George Kerchev, and Shane Scott. Also thanks to Mohammad Ghomi for an exciting presentation on the age-old Durer's problem and recent progress, and to J.D. Walsh for engaging the students, parents and school counselors with a passionate talk on professional opportunities for students majoring in math.
