Oxbridge Academy freshman Brian Reinhart has been recognized as one of the best math students in the nation. Reinhart was one of about 25 students invited to the Mathematics Association of America’s Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program this summer, June 7-July 1, 2015, at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. He won his seat as one of the top scorers on the 6th annual Junior Math Olympiad test given to 230 students across the country in April.
The Junior Math Olympiad is a six-question test of algebra and geometry questions that students take online. They have nine hours over two days to correctly solve the six problems. It is used by the association to identify the top math students in the United States.
Reinhart was one of the select few students picked to compete in the Junior Olympiad out of an initial field of about 210,000 students based on his score on another test, the American Math Competition 10 test given to high schoolers.
After attending the Math Olympiad Summer Program this summer, Reinhart could also be selected as one of six students to compete on the United States team in the International Mathematical Olympiad held July 4-16, 2015, in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
