Scholar of the Week: Aberdeen Central senior's passion for math

Posted: Updated:

Our Scholar of the Week excels in the two M's: music and math.  His teachers say his talents in both are far beyond what would commonly be expected.

Michael Marmorstein is a senior at Aberdeen Central High School.  He loves math so much that it even figures into his wardrobe: wearing the mathematical designation for pi on his shirt.

"I really like the calculus and I really like study analysis which is the study of functions," says Marmorstein. 

He competes in mathematics competitions and to brush up, he asks his math teacher Evelyn McQuillen to give him extra assignments and to make them as tough as possible.

Marmorstein routinely volunteers his time as a math tutor to help students who may not figure out complicated equations as quickly as he does.

"Michael is an incredibly wonderful, humble young man and he is not boastful of his skills or talents," says McQuillen. 

"I'd like to be a math teacher of some kind, maybe a professor at a university of even a high school math teacher," says Marmorstein.
