16-Year-Old Helps APSU Math Jeopardy Team Win Second Place In Southeast Region

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – David Zhang’s age seemed problematic. The 16-year-old Kenwood High School student was taking advantage of Austin Peay State University’s dual enrollment program, but instead of signing up for a couple of introductory college courses, he asked to enroll in the most advanced undergraduate mathematics classes offered by the University – differential equations and complex analysis.

“Complex analysis is the highest undergraduate course in the math department,” Dr. Ben Ntatin, APSU associate professor of mathematics, said. “I was scared to give him a waiver at first. But he’s easily the best student.”

Dodji Kuwonu, David Zhang and Benjamin D. Firth led the APSU Math Jeopardy Team to a second place win at the Mathematics Association of Mathematics south-east sectional annual meeting.
