Student Mathematicians Test Their Mettle
At the end of February, fifty students from Sleepy Hollow High School competed for national, regional, local, and school awards at either the 16th annual American Mathematics Contest 10 or the more advanced 66th annual American Mathematics Contest 12. These prestigious mathematics challenges feed directly into the United States of America Mathematical Olympiad, the United States of America Junior Mathematical Olympiad, and the Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program. ©
