BEAVERCREEK — Beavercreek senior Richard Huang has qualified for the United States of America Mathematics Olympiad (USAMO).
Huang qualified for the USAMO as a result of high scores on the American Mathematics Competitions test and the American Invitational Mathematics Examination. Roughly 500 students in the United States qualify for the USAMO in any given year.
On each day of the competition, under the supervision of a designated proctor, students have 4.5 hours to work on three exceptionally difficult mathematics questions. The top 12 highest performing USAMO participants will be declared winners and honored at the Mathematical Association of America in Washington, D.C.
Huang will graduate from Beavercreek High School in May as a valedictorian of his class.
“This is an exceptional student who has a tremendous opportunity ahead of him,” said Beavercreek High School Principal Jeff Jones. “Richard epitomizes the academic excellence our district strives for and I know he will continue to make our community proud.”
