MUSEUM OF MATHEMATICS HOLDS FIRST-EVER “MOMATH MASTERS TOURNAMENT” FUNDRAISING GALA

New York, NY, March 14, 2012 – The Museum of Mathematics (momath.org) held its inaugural fundraiser, the first-ever MoMath Masters Tournament, on February 28th at Tribeca Rooftop. As the only adult math tournament in existence, the Masters brought together many of New York’s top mathematical minds, as well as those curious about America’s only Museum of Mathematics. More than 200 people participated in the cocktail round portion of the tournament, solving math puzzles and challenges asked via tablet computers handed out by MoMath. All attendees also had the chance to browse various exhibits slated to appear in the Museum, allowing a first glimpse into what MoMath plans to offer. The twenty-one top scorers then advanced to the finals round, where they competed against each other to determine the grand prize winners. Problems for the tournament were provided by the Art of Problem Solving and drawn from various sources including MOEMS, Math Counts, the AMC competitions, the AIME competition, and the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament.

The grand prize winners of the MoMath Masters Tournament were:

· First place: John Overdeck of Two Sigma Investments, LLC
