HH Students Stand Out in Math Olympiad

Harbor Hill School Math Olympians Students from Harbor Hill School were among the nearly 150,000 students worldwide to participate this year in the Math Olympiad program.  They participated in five monthly contests of five problems each, from November to March, and weekly practice sessions under the supervision of Harbor Hill Computer Teacher Amy Braunstein, who taught the children to solve unusual and difficult problems and to think creatively.  The students responded well and were all recognized for their participation.  Eight of the Mathletes at Harbor Hill won national awards for excellence within the Elementary Division for grades 4-6. 

The embroidered felt patch (*) is awarded to those in the top 50% of all the participants.  Harbor Hill’s Esha Chandra also won the Silver Pin for being in the top 10% and Ethan Berkowitz was also awarded the gold pin for those in the top 2% and the trophy for being the top scorer at Harbor Hill.
