The Final Day Of The 2013 ARML Nationals And Internationals
Song: World Of Dreams
Group: Future World Music
This was just a short while before the final day of competition.
NNV Math Club is in the red shirts...
Alex is just in front of the boy in the blue sweat shirt.
The team in the pink (team 1) were the National Champions (A League)...
from the San Francisco Bay Area
(team 2 took 4th).
I know how smart these kids are.
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area
I was NOT one of the smart ones :)
This was NNV Math Club's first competition.
They were in the B league.
For having 5 of their members in Middle School...
in an elite High School competition...
they didn't do so poorly
(30th out of 55 in the B league - nation wide).
These young mathematicians are some of the brightest in the world
(all four of the world's top teams were competing here in Las Vegas...
among many others from Asia)...
For the International winners:
3rd place...Indonesia / Korea

We went off campus to eat lunch.

These are the High Schoolers of the team.
These are all of the team members who are

The National Champions...
The Pink Team (San Francisco Bay Area).

They won't meet again until August.
Alex is looking forward to next year's competition.
I dropped off one of his team members at the airport...
and we went back to the hotel to rest...
and we then went out to the Las Vegas strip for a couple of hours
later that night (next article).
