Freshman Tarun Martheswaran took 1st place in the Utah State Math competition held this year at Weber State this Spring. Senior Tanisha Martheswaran and Junior Daniel South also placed.
120 Upper School students participated in the American Mathematics Competition (AMC). Results from this exam qualified freshman Tarun Martheswaran, Sophomore Evan LaForge and Junior Daniel South to take the American Invitational Math Exam (AIME). And finally, Class XI Daniel South's results from the AMC and AIME exam qualified him to be one of only 3 students in the state of Utah to take the United States Math Olympiad (USAMO) test. Only 270 of the original 350,000 students in the U.S. who began this process made it to this level of competition.
