What do you get if you divide the circumference of a jack-o-lantern by its diameter? Pumpkin Pi! But all puns aside, math is definitely on the minds of the members of AHS’ Math Team, working hard at and since their latest competition. The team’s 30-some members exhibited their interest and skill in math. Math Team’s main focus is the Bay Math League (BML), whose third meet Mar. 17 was at West Torrance High School.

AHS’ Math Team’s preparation for the BML is no small task. Almost all material at BML meets is extracurricular. Therefore, members must have a high level of commitment to learn an advanced level of Calculus, Algebra, and other subjects. It is no wonder then that the team must dedicate itself to one and a half hour meetings weekly where members work hard on practice problems and new material.

Before the competition, the team’s thirty-some members test into smaller, ten-member teams. Everyone takes two or more tough ten-minute, ten-point tests. Individual awards are given out but out of everyone who competes at the competition, only the scores of Team A and Team B’s count toward AHS’ Math Team’s score who also take a collective, team test.

This is Math Team’s third Bay Math League meet: it has placed first in the first meet with a margin to remain in first by three points after placing third at the second meet.
