Bishop Diego’s Nic Mon Qualifies For Prestigious Mathmatics Examination

Bishop Diego junior Nic Mon scored a 94.5 on the American Mathematics Competition (11th/12th grade division) which places him among the top 5% of the roughly 110,000 contestants in the United States and abroad. Nic’s performance qualifies him to sit for the American Invitational Mathematics Examination on March 17th, 2011, the results of which are used to select approximately 300 students to participate in the USA Mathematical Olympiad.

Michael Fay, the moderator of Bishop’s Mu Alpha Theta (math honors society) chapter feels that “participating in mathematics contests creates a stimulating environment. Following the contests, students discuss their problem solving approaches. These discussions resemble the collaborative problem-solving found in the best high-tech firms.”

Nic Mon is a STEM Academy student at Bishop Diego, as well as a three sport athlete.

Bishop Diego is an independent, Catholic high school that welcomes students of all faiths.
