Illinois Math League
Academy High has begun competing in Illinois Math League! Last week, students completed their first of six tests that will be administered over the academic year. On the tests, correct solutions usually require at least one stroke of exceptional mathematical insight per problem and often demand multiple steps. Illinois Math League grants both school and individual recognition, state-wide, for cumulative success on the tests. Congratulations to Mayank Hirani, who was Academy High’s high scorer on Test #1!
