UW Students Perform Well on Virginia Tech Math Contest
On October 24, 2018, several math students took the Virginia Tech Math Contest. The Virginia Tech Contest is similar to the Putnam Exam, but perhaps somewhat easier; this year 94 schools from 29 states took part in the 40th contest and there were 792 participants. The maximum possible score was 70.
We were thrilled to discover two of our students ranked 2nd and 3rd nationwide!
Congratuations to Liwei Jiang (2nd) and Sivakorn Sanguanmoo (3rd).
Also notable, Xiaxin Li (21st) and Ruiting Tong (24th).
