This past Saturday, (Nov. 10), Central Piedmont Math Instructors Hai Ngo and Justine Bonanno took a group of seven, top-performing math students to the 9th Annual North Carolina Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (NCMATYC) Mathematics Competition hosted at Davidson Community College.

The group competed against 100 students from 12 community colleges located across the state. The competition consisted of two parts: a morning calculus exam (90 minutes, 40 questions, multiple-choice, **calculators not allowed**) and an afternoon team competition containing solely pre-calculus problems (scientific calculators only, provided by the competition organizers).

Central Piedmont student Anh Hoang (pictured third from right, above) won the third place individual from the morning competition.
