Math club takes the Purple Comet test

Matthew Yam

Members of the Math club participated in Purple Comet, an international online mathematics competition open to middle and high school students.

The competition requires teams of six students to solve advanced math problems and then submit them online. Eli Goldin ‘17, Justin Rose ‘17, Sean Jung ‘16, Zach Belateche ‘16, Tony Ma ‘17 and Benjamin Most ‘16 represented the club, completing 27 out of 30 problems.

“Purple Comet was a unique math experience because of the high degree of freedom. While math class asks simple questions where the clearest solution is usually best, Purple Comet demanded a very refreshing, deeper level of problem-solving,” Ma said in an email.
