The Northshore Middle School Math Club recently participated in the American Mathematics Competitions 8 and earned the school a School Merit Roll title.

In addition, Sri Varshitha Pinnaka and Yash Mathur placed in the top one percent nationally, each earning a Distinguished Honor Roll title. Satvik Kabbur and Justin Chae placed in the top five percent nationally to earn Honor Roll titles each.

AMC 8 is put together by the Mathematical Association of America. Through classroom resources and friendly competition, AMC helps educators identify talent and foster a love of mathematics.

The first mathematical contest, sponsored by the New York Metropolitan Section of the Mathematics Association of America, took place in 1950. It was given in about 200 schools to roughly 6,000 students in the New York area only. Today, the competition has grown to more than 350,000 students participating annually, in more than 6,000 schools.
