The goal of the math team at Salisbury is to improve students' problem solving abilities while having fun! Everybody is welcome and encouraged to join. The math team competes in several international competitions throughout the year. In February, dozens of students take the American Mathematics Competition (AMC), held on our campus. We are proud to support a small group of students who then qualify for the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME), among the top mathematics students in the country.
Also in February, eight students selected from the math team represent Salisbury at the Harvard-MIT Mathematics Tournament (HMMT) in Cambridge, MA. HMMT is one of the largest and most prestigious high school competitions in the world. Each tournament draws close to 1000 students from around the globe, including top scorers at national and international olympiads. This school sponsored trip is an amazing opportunity for our students to experience the Harvard and MIT campuses while competing against some of the best student mathematicians internationally.
Additionally, the Salisbury math team fosters engagement with other local boarding schools' math teams while attending events such as the Hotchkiss Math Bash. For more information contact Instructor in Mathematics Scot Beattie.
