Sharing an interest in computers by the members and compete in computer contests.

Math Team

Ms. Secor at [email protected]

The AHS Math Team is open to anyone who likes math. At our weekly meetings we practice a variety of math problems to prepare for the monthly meets at different schools in the area (October through February). It's also a good place to find new friends who share your interests. Stop by a meeting if you're interested - you don't have to be good to have fun!

Robotics Club

Mr. Vatan at [email protected]

We are a group of students that enjoys building, programming, and designing robots. We compete in the First Tech Competition in which we design, build, and program robots to compete against other teams around the U.S. and the world.

The AHS STEAM Team’s goals will be to foster interdisciplinary cooperation between several creative electives and core classes at the school. The club with pursue increasingly ambitious STEAM related projects using all of its available resources, such as representatives from CADD, art, math, science, music technology, woodworking and Computer Sciences.

AHS offers the following contests to all students:

The AMC American Mathematics Competitions hosted by MAA (Mathematic Association of America) 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. Students in grade 10 or below and under 17.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 10. The AMC 12 covers the entire high school curriculum including trigonometry, advanced algebra, and advanced geometry, excluding calculus. Students in grade 12 or below and under 19.5 years of age on the day of the contest can take the AMC 12. These competitions are administered around the country on Thursday, February 4, 2021 and Wednesday, February 10, 2021. 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 lead all the way to the International Mathematical Olympiad.

The AIME (American Invitational Mathematics Examination) is an intermediate examination between the AMC 10 or AMC 12 and the USAMO (USA Mathematics Olympiad). All students who took the AMC 12 and achieved a score of 100 or more out of a possible 150 or were in the top 5% are invited to take the AIME. All students who took the AMC 10 and had a score of 120 or more out of a possible 150, or were in the top 2.5% also qualify for the AIME. The top scoring U. S. citizens and students legally residing in the United States and Canada (with qualifying scores, based on a weighted average) are invited to take the USA Mathematics Olympiad.

The Massachusetts Association of Math Leagues is the major high school math competition organization in Massachusetts. It organizes two major competitions, a MAML olympiad, and the MAML state math meet. In October, thousands of high school students across Massachusetts take the MAML Olympiad Level 1, which consists of 30 multiple choice questions to be completed in 1.5 hours, similar to the format of the old American High School Mathematics Examination. The top 100 scorers are considered finalists, and the next 100 are called semi-finalists. In early March, all of the finalists take the 3-hour MAML Olympiad Level 2, which consists of proof-type questions, usually around 7 multi-part questions. The top 20 scorers on that receive cash prizes ranging from $50 to $250.
