  • American Mathematics Association

For more than 60 years, students across the country have taken up the challenge of America’s longest-running and most prestigious math contests, The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC). Every year, at thousands of schools in every state, more than 350,000 students are presented with a set of questions rich in content, designed to make them think and sure to leave them talking.

Now in its nineteenth year, the ARML Power Contest provides a group problem solving situation similar to the power question found at the annual ARML Competition. Each year the contest consists of two problem sets, one in the fall and the other in late winter. The mathematics level of the contest problems has been geared so that students in an honors class, in a math club, or on a math team can have a unique problem solving and mathematical writing experience. There is no limit to the size of the team, but the time for solving the problem set is limited to 45 minutes.

The Georgia Council of Teachers of Mathematics (GCTM) is an affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).  The organization is made up of classroom teachers from pre-school to graduate school in addition to non-teachers who just share an interest in mathematics education in the state of Georgia.
