Math Masters Count in Nationwide Competition

A group of Upper School students who are nimble with numbers participated in the American Mathematics Competition (AMC). This is the sixth year of the school’s participation in this national contest, and our students regularly rise to the occasion to demonstrate their mastery of math.

For 75 minutes, the students used their skills in problem-solving, deduction and computation to answer the 25 multiple-choice questions covering the full gamut of traditional high school curriculum, including trigonometry, advanced algebra and advanced geometry.
According to the AMC teachers’ manual, “The Mathematical Association of America’s American Mathematics Competitions program leads the nation in strengthening the mathematical capabilities of the next generation of problem-solvers...[and] positively impacts the analytical skills needed for future careers in an innovative society.”
Congratulations to this year’s participants!
