On December 6 and January 10, the Shanghai American School (SAS) Puxi mathletes wrote the third and fourth American Scholastic Mathematics Association (ASMA) mathematics competitions. With two more contests remaining over the next two months, the team’s cumulative score stands at a robust 208 points out of a possible 224. This year’s contest included many more new faces in the various “A-lists,” indicating a general spreading of both enthusiasm and excellence among young SAS competitors.

Each contest is open to all high school students, and the team score is composed of the highest eight individual marks. The contest papers each consist of seven challenging questions, but based on concepts no more advanced than what students typically encounter in an Algebra II/Trig class. The A-lists comprise all students having scores equal to one of the top eight scores.

After four contests, a total of 17 students have found their way onto at least one A-list!

At the two-thirds mark of this year’s contest, Timothy Sun leads the field with a cumulative score of 27 (out of 28), with Long-Min Choi, Mike Du, and Steve Kang each having cumulative scores of 26. The bid for school champion promises to be a photo finish!

In addition to our ASMA mathematics contests, SAS also participated the very prestigious Canadian Contests on February 19 and the AMC (American Mathematics Competition) events on February 21.
