#2 Private School Team at the 2022 Mu Alpha Theta National Math Competition
430 students from 29 schools across the nation met in Washington, DC, to participate in 62 challenging events as part of the 2022 Mu Alpha Theta National Math Competition.
With exceptional representation at the competition, American Heritage Schools, Palm Beach Campus, was able to keep its place as one of the Top Private School Math Teams in the US. The AHS math team scored 6200 points based on their members’ performances in both team and individual categories that cover advanced topics such as analytic geometry, logs and exponents, open probability and combinatorics, and calculus.
Math Team students have spent countless hours studying over weekends and during the summer to achieve this fantastic result. 32 students spent a week in Washington, DC, earning a variety of awards and recognitions, including 18 first place finishes, 32 students placing between 2nd and 5th place, ranking as the 2nd best private school in all three major divisions (algebra - theta, precalculus - alpha, and calculus - mu), and a 1st team finish in the statistics division. Congratulations, Math Team, on a very successful year!

Mu Alpha Theta is a math honor society. At the national convention, each division represents a different type of math. Mu represents calculus, Alpha represents pre-calculus, and Theta represents algebra/geometry. Each grade level competes in one of these categories. The category is based on what type of math the student takes in school.
The competition consists of a general 60-minute test of 30 multiple-choice questions and three tests related to the specific area of math in which the students are competing. Aside from the main events, students can also choose to participate in smaller competitions such as mental math, speed math, and a presentation poster.
