The Mathematical Association of America has recognized Earl L. Vandermeulen High School junior and mathletes team captain Ryan Burke for his achievement in the American Math Competition 12. The exam, which was given to students nationwide in grades 11 and 12 on Feb. 4, consisted of 25 multiple-choice pre-calculus questions to be answered in 75 minutes. The main purpose of the AMC 12 is to spur interest in mathematics and develop talent through the excitement of solving challenging problems. 

Ryan’s high score on the exam was in the top 5 percent of AMC 12 participants nationwide. It also qualifies him to take the American Invitational Mathematics Exam in March. The three-hour exam consists of 15 questions and is intended to provide further challenge and recognition to the highest performing mathematics students in North America.
