MHS Students Qualify for National Math OlympiadTwo Mason High School students completed their first Math Olympiads like champs! The underclassmen qualified for the USAMO and the USAJMO - The United States of America (Junior) Mathematical Olympiad - which took place April 19 and 20.

MHS freshman Sruthi Parthasarathi qualified for the USAMO, and sophomore Richard Liu qualified for the USAJMO, respectively.

"To qualify for this event, students had to do well in both the AMC 10/12 and the AIME (American Invitational Mathematics Examination)," explained MHS math teacher and Math Team Advisor Colleen Everett. "The AMC was a 15 question, 75 minute examination and the AIME was a 15 question, three hour examination." 

The USAMO/USAJMO are six-question proof examinations, spread out over nine hours between two days. U.S. citizens and students studying in the United States and Canada (with qualifying scores) are eligible to take the USAMO and USAJMO.

"With this being their first year, it was quite the accomplishment to simply get as far as they did." added Everett. "They are competing against individuals across the United States. We are hoping for a repeat showing next year so they can do even better!"
