Math Olympiad Winner
Jordan S. Ellenberg, a sophomore at Winston Churchill High School in Potomac, is the winner of a gold medal in the 28th International Mathematical Olympiad held in Havana on July 10 and 11.
Ellenberg was one of six high school students who made up the American team, which placed fifth in the competition. Students from 42 countries participated in the Olympiad.
Jordan achieved a perfect score of 42, one of 22 students to do so.
Chosen on the basis of his performance in the United States Mathematical Olympiad in April, and on an evaluation of his work at a rigorous, four-week training session at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in June, Jordan worked the solutions to six challenging mathematical problems in two 4 1/2-hour sessions.
The Americans had a team score of 220 points out of a possible 252. Scoring above them were Romania, West Germany, the Soviet Union and East Germany.
