Two Sonoran Science Academy students have advanced to the next round of a national math competition.

Sophomore David Wang and senior Peter Bian are among 160 students who have advanced in the American Mathematical Society's "Who Wants to be a Mathematician?" contest.

Wang and Bian attend Sonoran Science Academy's Tucson campus at 2325 W. Sunset Road.

The two students will take an online test later this month to see if they can advance to the final ten.

If they move on, the students will vie for the top prize at the 2014 Joint Mathematics Meeting in January.

The event will take place in Baltimore.
