Last year, in Mr. Hanson’s BC Calculus class he posed a question, and Jonathan Buchanan, a ninth grader then, gave a very interesting solution. So much so, that Mr. Hanson sent it to the Mathematics Teacher Magazine, and heard back from the editor five minutes later. He said he wanted to publish it. Sure enough, the question and solution appeared in The Mathematics Teacher, October 2017. Congratulations Jonathan!
