Missouri math students take second in national competition (Posted 08/14/15)
On May 30, 32 of Missouri's best high school mathematics students traveled to the University of Iowa to compete in the annual American Regions Mathematics League national competition. After four tests (Team, Individual, Relay, and Power Question), Missouri's 15-student B-team placed second in the nation among 48 B-Division teams. On the set of 10 individual questions, the B-team was led by freshmen Daniel Barnett of Rock Bridge High School and Lenny Chen of Ladue High School, who each won a medal for correctly answering 5 of the 10 questions. Veer Sangha of Hickman High School was another contributing member of the B-team. Among the 48 teams, the Missouri B-team's excellent teamwork led to a first-place tie in the Team Round and a 9th place tie on the Power Question.
Coaches Rick Armstrong (Retired, STLCC), Patti Blanton (MSU), Cheng Yung Chen (MSU), Anne Mosher (STLCC), and Chip Day (retired, McCluer North High School, team registrar) accompanied the Missouri students this year and helped train the students during the year at several Missouri sites.
