Glen Cove Chairperson of Mathematics Cassandra Shannon and Principal Dr. Joseph Hinton recently congratulated four Glen Cove High School students for achieving high scores on the American Mathematics Competition (AMC), administered by the Mathematical Association of America.

The AMC exams are categorized by the AMC 10, geared for ninth and tenth graders, and the AMC 12, for eleventh and twelfth graders. Freshman Andrew Schuck scored the highest among 20 Glen Cove High School students who were administered the AMC 10 test. Junior Alison Abrams was the top scorer among 20 Glen Cove High School students who took the AMC 12 exam. Katherine Serrano and Andrew Sakhaee also achieved high scores worthy of recognition by the Mathematical Association of America.

Math Honor students are recommended for the AMC tests by their teachers. The exams are very difficult and designed to strengthen the mathematical skills of students through advanced problem solving and enriching mathematics experiences. Each student received a certificate of recognition for his or her high scores.
