  1. RACL 2017 USAMO/USAJMO Special Training Session

Teacher: Dr. Peter Diao


From April 19th to April 20th, the top 500 mathletes across the nation will participate in the USA Math Olympiad (USAMO/USAJMO), a 9- hour- long examination centered around proof writing. In order to help aspiring mathletes develop the proof writing skills necessary to compete in the arduous competition, the Raleigh Academy of Chinese Language will host 2 olympiad sessions conducted by Dr. Peter Diao.

This class is geared towards dedicated students from grades 8-12 who have high chances of qualifying for the USAMO. Due to the agenda of this class, all students who are interested in participating must have:

1)      Participated in the AMC 10/12 and qualified for the AIME

2)      Scored high enough on the AIME to guarantee a JMO index of 214.5 or above OR

3)      Scored high enough on the AIME to guarantee an AMO index of 220 or above

We are honored to host such a collection of bright minds and thus would like to invite all potential USAMO/USAJMO qualifiers nearby to come join us in these classes.

The instructor Dr. Peter Diao is currently a Post Doctor at Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI). He received his BA from Princeton University and his PhD from Stanford. Dr. Diao used to be an achieving mathlete himself. He is a USAMO Honorable Mention, 2 time participant of MOSP, Virginia 2002 Mathcounts state champion, 2002 National mathcounts team first place, 2 time Putnam honorable mention and AMC 12 perfect scorer. In addition to his rich career in math competitions, Peter also has plenty of experience as an instructor: he is an AoPS instructor and was a counselor for the prestigious Ross program. To top it all off, his passion in helping younger students succeed is rivaled by few.
