Final Contest Results 2021-22

Learning and practicing analytical reasoning skills goes a long way towards the success in math contests. Even more importantly, when people do what they love, they usually do it quite well. And so, our students are very good when it comes to math competitions. In 2021-2022, our teams finished among the best in Illinois, Midwest Region, and Nationally in a number of contests.

Thirteen of our students were Math Kangaroo National Champions; Twenty-three students were National Champions in the CML contests; four students earned George Lenchner Medals and Fourty-two students earned Gold Pins in MOEMS contests; eight students made Honor Roll and twenty made Achievement Roll in the AMC-8 contest; many students made various other Honor Rolls and earned other individual awards.

See the full breakdown of team and individual results on this page.

AMC-8 2022 RESULTS

20 Mr. Math students made the Achievement Roll, including 15 among 66 total in Illinois!

8 Mr. Math students made the Honor Roll, including a fourth grader and 3 fifth graders!

In January, our students participated in the AMC-8 contest. AMC-8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills. It is one of the hardest contests for middle school students. Besides including many very challenging problems, its strict time constraint requires not just great analytical reasoning abilities, but also quick thinking and ability to solve hard problems without making mistakes.

The top 5% of participants make the Honor Roll. Most of these students are in 8th or 7th grade. Making the Honor Roll at a younger age is indicative of an exceptional talent and requires years of hard work. Seven Mr. Math students accomplished this feat (including 6 out of 20 in Illinois). We congratulate our students who made the Honor Roll (grade in parenthesis): Alex Z (6), Bella L (5), Carter W (7), Daniel G (5), Ethan J (6), Isaac C (5), James B (4), Samuel H (6).

Since the contest targets 8th graders, it is exceptionally difficult for younger students. AMC-8 publishes a special Achievement Roll for all students in Grades 6 or below who score 15 or more points. Twenty Mr. Math students made the Achievement Roll this year, including 15 out of 66 in Illinois: Alex Z (6), Arjun W (6), Bella L (5), Charlotte O (6), Daniel G (5), Dylan T (6), Ethan J (6), Grant L (6), Gus M (6), Heather W (6), Henry X (5), Isaac C (5), James B (4), John X (4), Keiran P (6), Ken W (6), Leo S (5), Samuel H (6), Sumanyu N (5), and William W (4)!

Congratulations to those amazing kids! We are soooooo proud of them!!! The future of math looks brighter with all those rising stars!
