Missouri Academy students rank high at math competition

Three students representing Northwest Missouri State University and its Missouri Academy of Science, Mathematics and Computing recently were among the top finishers at the Michigan Autumn Take Home (MATH) Challenge.

Missouri Academy students Anzumaan Chakraborty, Irene Hung and David Wang competed as a team Nov. 5 and finished 12th among 74 teams from 26 colleges and universities.

The MATH Challenge is a team-oriented math competition for undergraduates. Teams of two or three students take a three-hour exam consisting of 10 problems dealing with topics and concepts found in undergraduate mathematics curriculum. Each team takes the exam on their home campus under the supervision of a faculty advisor. After the exam, teams are scored and ranked.

Dr. Russell Euler, a professor of mathematics and statistics at Northwest, serves as the faculty advisor of the team.

The Missouri Academy is a two-year residential, early-entrance-to-college program on the Northwest campus that replaces the junior and senior years of high school. Academy students enroll in the same courses as traditional University students and are held to the same academic expectations while living, socializing and studying in a learning community of peers.
