A record number of high school students has advanced to the second round of the Michigan Mathematics Prize Competition test. Forty-nine Forest Hills high school students were among the top finishers in Part I of the Michigan Mathematics Prize Competition. Their scores have qualified them to take Part II of the exam, which is held in December. Part I of the MMPC is open to all students in Michigan high schools. This exam consists of 40 multiple-choice questions involving topics from high school mathematics. From approximately 10,000 participants in Part I, the top 1,000 students are invited to take Part II of the MMPC exam.
