There were 26 students from PHS who participated in the annual American Mathematics Competition that was administered in November.

“Congratulations to all students who participated in the annual American Mathematics Competitions. Participation in the AMC exams gives our students the opportunity to practice math concepts and problem-solving skills in a fun and supportive environment. We are proud of all the students who participated. Thank you for your strong representation of Pomperaug High School!” said Christopher Walsh, Math / Science Department Chairperson for Region 15.

The AMC 10 and AMC 12 are both 25-question, 75-minute, multiple-choice examinations in high school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem-solving skills. The AMC 10 is for students in 10th grade and below, and covers the high school curriculum up to 10th grade. The AMC 12 covers the entire high school curriculum including trigonometry, advanced algebra, and advanced geometry, but excluding calculus. The AMC 10/12 provides an opportunity for high school students to develop positive attitudes towards analytical thinking and mathematics that can assist in future careers. The AMC 10/12 is the first in a series of competitions that eventually leads all the way to the International Math Olympiad.
