On November 19th, 2017 at University of California, Berkeley, after three grueling hours of Math contests that included both individual and team events, 8th grade Joseph Zhang won 1st place at the Berkeley Mini Math Tournament, and 7th grade Nilay Mishra was 8th.  

In the team round, Redwood with Stuti Agarwal, Jeffrey Hu, Nilay Mishra, Albert Ye, and Joseph Zhang came in 2nd. This is a truly commendable performance by the Redwood students, given that the majority of the teams were from various Math tutoring centers that had formed teams by drawing top Mathletes from different schools across the Bay Area. Congratulations to Redwood for an outstanding performance!

Redwood Mathletes participated in the 54th Annual SCVMA Math Field Day on Saturday, March 18, 2017, sponsored by West Valley College Department of Mathematics and Santa Clara Valley Mathematics Association.

Our kids came out with top honors in both middle school contests. In the Middle School Leap Frog Team Relay, open to all middle schoolers, our two-person team consisting of Tej Bade and Jason Cheng took 1st place. In the Middle School Mad Hatter Marathon, a contest by grade level, our teams did extremely well bagging several awards. Sixth graders Lucas Zheng came in 3rd, Lisa Fung 6th, and Anirudh Iyer 9th. In 7th grade, Daniel Jiang was 2nd, and in eighth grade, Henry Weng placed 5th. Well done, TJMC!

Mathcounts State

On March 18th, 2017 at Stanford University, Redwood’s  MATHCOUNTS team represented by Preston Fu, Rohan Kumar, Anthony Wang, and Joseph Zhang, placed second at the MATHCOUNTS NORCAL STATE competition.  All four members of Redwood’s team placed in the top 25% with three in the top 16. Preston Fu came in 4th, Anthony Wang 15th, and Joseph Zhang 16th.


To get a sense of the level of competition at these contests, to qualify for the MATHCOUNTS NORCAL STATE, Redwood’s team had to first secure one of the top spots among approximately 400 students competing in the MATHCOUNTS Santa Clara Chapter contest, reputed to be the most competitive chapter in the nation!


The top 192 students (37 teams, including all chapter champions, and 44 independents) from 15 different chapters from Northern California then move on to the California MATHCOUNTS NORCAL STATE competition. Redwood’s mathletes fielded extremely strong teams from Cupertino, Pleasanton, Fremont, Harker, and Proof School amongst others, and came in only narrowly behind Miller.


This is an incredible achievement for Redwood and for our students. Please congratulate them on their performance.

INTERSECT

On March 5th, 2017, fifty Redwood students competed in the invitational only (INTER)2SECT contest, having qualified via strong performances at Mathleague contests earlier in the school year. This is the largest contingent of Redwood students to have been eligible for this state level tournament.


In team competition, Redwood’s team comprising of Preston Fu, Rohan Kumar, Anthony Wang, and Joseph Zhang captured the title. In individual contest, Anthony Wang came in 6th in sixth grade, Preston Fu 4th in seventh grade, Joseph Zhang 6th also in seventh grade, and Rohan Kumar trumped the competition in eighth grade to come in 1st. Preston Fu was the overall Countdown winner.


This is an impressive performance for all the student participants. We are very pleased with their accomplishment.



TJMC AMC 8 Accomplishments

posted Jan 22, 2017, 10:23 PM by no reply togamath

Every year, the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) hosts a series of examinations to test mathematical and problem solving skills. One of those exams, the AMC 8, targets students in middle school. This 25-questions, 40-minutes test is fast and challenging, and provides an opportunity for middle school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics.

Redwood performed very well this year in the AMC8 and made the School Honor Roll, scoring 74 points out of a maximum of 75. We have 2 students that received perfect scores, 15 students qualified for the Distinguished Honor Roll (top 1%), and 20 for the Honor Roll (top 5%). Congratulations to all Toga Jr mathletes for a phenomenal job!
