CHS Math Club American Math Competition

The CHS Math club will be hosting the American Math Competition test/s for this year. The tests given will be the AMC 10a on February 3, the AMC 10b on February 25 and the AMC 12b on February 25. Both AMC 10 tests are of same difficulty and the AMC 12 is harder. Freshmen and sophomores can take the AMC 10 and 12 level tests while juniors and seniors can only take the AMC 12. The students won’t have to pay for the tests and anyone from any math class can join as the tests focus mainly on problem solving skills rather than raw knowledge. There is no penalty for doing poorly on the tests and if someone does well, they can use this as a resume builder. People who excel have the chance of being invited to the American Invitational Mathematics Examination later in the year. Please ask Jason Kim (jason.kim117@gmail.com) for more information and visit:  http://www.maa.org/math-competitions

Mr. Pathak Goes to Washington

Magnet Senior Reesab Pathak was named yesterday as a finalist in the Intel Science Talent Search 2015.  Mr. Pathak conducted an internship over the last year and a half at OHSU where he worked on a research team to better understand HIV.  His work there, including a recent co-author credit in a study published in the December 2014 Journal of Immunology:  Universal, MHC-E restricted killer T cell responses: Identification of a novel immune response against HIV was the basis for his selection as a finalist.  Congratulations, Reese!

For a closer description of the trip he will take to Washington D.C., in March, which includes a meeting with President Obama at The White House, see information below from the Intel STS Website & Press Release:

“On January 21, 40 high school seniors were named finalists in the Intel Science Talent Search 2015, a program of Society for Science & the Public. Finalists will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. from March 5-11, where they will undergo final judging, display their work to the public, meet with notable scientists, and compete for $1,012,500 in awards, including the three top awards of $150,000 each. These finalists were chosen from the select pool of 300 high school seniors named semifinalists in the Intel Science Talent Search 2015 on January 7.”

“The Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS), a program of Society for Science & the Public (SSP) is the nation’s most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors.  Since 1942, first in partnership with Westinghouse and since 1998 with Intel, SSP has provided a national stage for the country’s best and brightest young scientists to present original research to nationally recognized professional scientists.”Intel STS Website & Press Release
