TJ students participated in the MathCon competition last week. The event begins with school-based rounds, during which students take an online test of 32 challenging math problems. Those who score in the top 1% in the nation are invited to Chicago for the final round in May.
The school-based results are now in, and they're fantastic! TJ had six fifth graders qualify for the finals in Chicago. Seven alternates were also identified and might be given the opportunity to head to the windy city if finalists are unable to go.
TJ's six finalists are, from left to right, Thomas Lapp, Seamus Cronin, Brian Ting, Bijan Zoghi, Luke Kostick, and Cyrus Taheri.
Our seven alternates are Charlotte Lieu, Duke Crespin, Daniel Mohel, Matthew Carmody, John Steyn, Landon Manwaring, and Gracie Davig.
