About National Math Competitions

  • American Mathematics Competitions is a series of mathematical competitions of increasing difficulty, starting with the AMC (for grades 8, 10, 12), continuing with AIME (for those who qualify), and finishing with the USAMO. The top participants in the USAMO are invited to take part in the Summer Program, where a US team for the Iinternational Olympiad is selected. The dates for this year's AMC are listed below. Several LAMC meetings will be devoted to preparing students for AMC and AIME.
  • American Regions Math League (ARML) is a challenging team competition (15-student teams representing schools or geograpical regions compete in challenging problem solving). The Southern California ARML teams are organized and coached by Prof. Kent Merryfield at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB). Please contact Prof. Merryfield at kmerry@csulb.edu if you are interested in ARML.
  • USA Math Talent Search The USA Mathematical Talent Search (USAMTS) is a free mathematics competition open to all United States middle and high school students. As opposed to most mathematics competitions, the USAMTS allows students a full month to work out their solutions. Carefully written justifications are required for each problem. The problems range in difficulty from being within the reach of most high school students to challenging the best students in the nation. Each year, the USAMTS consists of four rounds, with each round featuring five problems. Here is the link to the current Math Talent Search: http://www.usamts.org/Problems/U_Problems.php
  • Pomona Talent search  The Pomona College Mathematical Talent Search partners with the University of Wisconsin-Madison to provide exciting mathematical problems to students who are interested in a challenge.  The questions do not require any advanced mathematical knowledge; but they do require interest and talent in problem solving.  We send out five problem sets each school year and provide solutions online.
