One Lausanne student used his math skills to become one of the highest ranking students in a national mathematics test.
Isaac Sheehan '23 scored in the top 5% nationally on the AMC8 (Mathematics Association of America) test, making the AMC8 Honor Roll.
The AMC 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development of problem-solving skills. The AMC 8 provides an opportunity for middle school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers. Students apply classroom skills to unique problem-solving challenges in a low-stress and friendly environment.
There were over 98,448 students and 1,844 schools nationally who participated in the test. These students were chosen because they perform at the top of their school mathematically.
Only 32 students in Tennessee made the 5% Honor Roll.
