2004 National High School Student
$1000 Calculus Competition Results

DAVIS CA, September 13, 2004

Ryan Williams, a student at Miami Springs High School, has won the fourth annual National High School Calculus Student Award. Calculus.org gives the $1,000 prize. University of California at Davis Professor Joel Hass will present the award.

According to his nomination:
Ryan Williams has proven to be an exceptional math student. Among his accomplishments: being a three year qualifier for the USAMO (United States Mathematics Olympiad), the Florida State Calculus Champion for the past two years, the Florida Mathematics League individual champion for 2003-2004, the 2003 Mu Alpha Theta National Champion on "The Number: e". In addition, he helped guide the school's computer team to first place at an ACM competition. On the University of Miami's David Essner Exam, he got the first perfect score in the 30 year history of the test.

Ryan also is an eager teacher of mathematics. Over the summer, he organized and held advanced mathematics seminars at his home for high school and middle school students. During the regular school year, he met twice a week with 7th and 8th graders from the middle school, where he taught them geometry.

Ryan will be attending Stanford University in the Fall.

Calculus.org is based at the University of California at Davis, Williams College, and Wake Forest University.
