Central High Sophomore Earns Perfect Score in American Mathematics Contest

Andrew Liu, Central High sophomore, is the only student in Missouri, and one of 59 in the nation to score a perfect 150 out of 150 points on the American Mathematics Competition (AMC) in February. Over 413,000 students in over 5100 schools across the nation participated in the AMC . Ten thousand of those students moved on to the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME) in early March, and 250 of those students, Liu included, qualified for the prestigious USA Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO) on April 18 and 19. The USAMO is a two day, six question, nine hour essay examination. The twelve top scoring USAMO students are invited to a two day Olympiad Awards Ceremony in Washington, D.C. and six of those students will comprise the United States team that competes in the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) in Ljubljana, Slovenia in July. Liu took the AMC 10 for students in grade 10 or below, which began in 2000. The AMC 10 is a 25 question, 75 minute multiple choice examination in pre-calculus secondary school mathematics. The AMC is sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America, and is intended to strengthen the mathematical capabilities of American youth. The first contest took place in 1950. The AMC solicits enrollment by mailing invitations to all schools in the U.S. teaching grades six through 12. For more information, please click on the link below.
