The Power Contest

  • The American Regions Mathematics League (ARML) offers a two test Power Contest to be worked on by a team at the students' high school. The Power Contest provides a group problem solving situation similar to the power question found at ARML Competitions.
  • 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 working on each Power Contest problem set, but the time for solving the problem set is limited to 45 minutes. Coaches will receive the contest materials at least one week prior to contest dates and may schedule the contest anytime during the designated week and a half. After completing the contest, student solutions are then mailed back and are graded using a forty point rubric
  • The dates for the 2015-2016 contest are Oct. 31 – Nov. 15, 2015 and Feb. 27 – Mar. 13, 2016 (spring dates are subject to change).
