We want to commend the 13 problem-solvers from Todd Middle School who participated in the 32nd annual American Mathematics Competition for middle school students (AMC 8) on November 15, 2016.  They are:

Taha  Ali, Nicholas J. Busaba, Emily Jea, Anikha A.Justin, Soumya Kamada, Emily Ma, Jonathan Raz, Jeet Shahani, Aditya Shankar, Shinrea Su, Edison Sung, Eric  Sung,  and Anoushka Swain

Special congratulations go out to eighth grader Emily Ma, sixth grader Jeet Shahani, and eighth grader Aditya Shankar for their achievements on this exam and receiving the top three scores at Todd.  

Emily Ma, who earned the title of School Winner, received the highest score achieved by a Todd student since we began administering the AMC 8 in 2009. Her exceptional performance places her in in the top 1% among students taking this test nationally.

The AMC 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple-choice examination organized by the Mathematical Association of America and designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills. Participation in this exam helps middle school students enhance their analytical thinking skills and develop positive attitudes toward mathematics. Students are able to apply knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to unique problem-solving challenges in a comfortable, stress-free environment.

The Todd Middle School Math Club, under the guidance of Mrs. Cindy Nguyen, participates in many challenging math competitions throughout the year. We are proud of all our participants.
