The Purple Comet Math competition is an international online math competition where students have 90 minutes to solve 30 challenging math problems. The IHHS team of junior Richard Guan, senior Kyle Huang, sophomore Ethan Shah, junior Jack Ning and junior Cody Fan answered 18 of the 30 correctly, placing them first in Ohio!

Indian Hill’s participation comes down to one student: Richard Guan. Richard discovered the competition last year, and they tried it to see what it was like. This year, he selected the team and arranged the time/place for the competition, plus he set up some practice opportunities for the team prior to the competition. “Richard has been instrumental in the development of our competitive math team over the past two years,” says Jim Prugh, Indian Hill High School math teacher.
