CSISD students earn American Mathematics Contest awards
Fifteen College Station ISD middle school students recently earned awards by scoring well on the American Mathematics Contest (AMC) 8 exam.
Tianshu Huang, Jong Jung and Yusha Sun scored well enough to be one of 83 students statewide to be included on the AMC 8 Distinguished Honor Roll.
Minha Kim, Huiyu Li, Soeun Kim, Eugene Tian, Tony Li, Hongsen Qin, Erika Salzman, Steven Wang, Hanzhi Wu, Byungjun Kim, Haity Qin, Richard Yu and Brandon Zhou scored well enough to be one of 422 students in the state named to the AMC 8 Honor Roll.
Additionally, AMCMS was one of 15 Texas schools to be named to the School Honor Roll.
The American Mathematics Contest 8 (AMC 8) is a 25 question, 40 minute multiple choice exam in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem solving skills.
The examination provides an opportunity to apply the concepts taught at the junior high level to problems which not only range from easy to difficult but also cover a wide range of applications. Many problems are designed to challenge students and to offer problem solving experiences beyond those provided in most junior high school mathematics classes. Calculators are not allowed starting in 2008. High scoring students are invited to participate in the AMC 10.
