American Mathematics Competition (AMC)

11 March 2021


In February 2021, Mu Alpha Theta (MAT) DHS offered students at our school the opportunity to take part in the high school level contests of the American Mathematics Competition (AMC) examination series, hosted by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). The AMCs, considered to be some of the most prestigious examinations in the world, test problem-solving skills and mathematical knowledge in middle and high school students. Each year, over 350,000 students from 6,000 schools take part in the USA alone.

We recently received a summary of all DHS participants' scores. It is with great honor that MAT DHS recognizes the achievements of two students. 

Aaryan S. and Vishesh J. have qualified for the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME). Both students received scores higher than 100 (out of 150 possible points), putting them in approximately the top 3.5% of juniors who took the test around the world. Of the more than 100,000 students who take part in the AMC 10/12 each year, approximately 3,000 qualify for the AIME. By being the only two high school students in the KSA to become a part of this group of AIME qualifiers, Aaryan and Vishesh have made MAT DHS extremely proud. Congratulations!
