Of the 1,128 papers submitted in this year’s Moody’s Mega Math Challenge, the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School team paper was judged to be among the top six. This is a distinguished accomplishment, given the rigorous and intense scrutiny that their paper endured. Maggie Walker’s team is guided by faculty advisor Dickson Benesh, and comprised of students Anant Kharkar (Henrico), William Overman (Hanover), Pranay Vissa (Henrico), Wilton Wu (Henrico), and Alan Zhang (Chesterfield). For the competition, students were asked to model the increasing costs of a college education as well as the earning potential for STEM and non-STEM majors. In the 14-hour contest window, the team wrote a 20-page paper that utilized high-level mathematics to formulate career path recommendations for high school students. Team members must present their solution to a panel of professional applied mathematicians in the final validation phase of judging. Presentations will take place in Manhattan on April 27, 2015.
