Jack Liu, Math Club co-president and junior, said the club will continue to practice for the American Mathematics Competition (AMC) throughout the rest of their February meetings.

Liu said, “For the AMCs, there are basically two different test dates where the exam is administered, The first of which was last Thursday, and the second is this Wednesday (Feb. 10). The two dates have slightly different tests, so generally most people take (both tests) to see which one they can get a better score on.”

Math Club sponsor Joseph Broman said, “Everything went well (at the AMCs) from an administrative standpoint, and I have no way of knowing how things went otherwise. We did our best to prepare, and there are several practice tests that looked great.”
