AA = Anti Aliasing
stops the edges being jaggered - smooths the off
the higher the value the better it will look

Unfortunately there's no "single" way to turn on Antialiasing for renders.

Do you run Mental Ray, Maya Software, Maya hardware, or a third party renderer?

Note: If you didn't touch the button to RIGHT of the "IPR" button, then chances are you're on Maya Software.

Click on the button to the RIGHT of IPR -- that's "render globals" IE: Options for Rendering.

On the popup, click the tab marked "Maya Software".

Near the top there'll be a menu -- "AntiAliasing Quality" on "Edge Antialiasing" dropdown menu click "Highest Quality" Under "number of samples" set that higher too (8-16 is uber quality, can go up to 32 though that tends to BLUR things, not just antialias... 4 is decent for quality + speed of render).

Multipixel filtering will also help you a bit... but forget it generally... too complicated.

To start out in your adventures for Antialiasing --> Just click the dropdown menu to highest quality... leave everything else alone... it should work nicely.
