the press release for the 2014 Washington ARML team!
Each year in June, 30 of the top math students across Washington State travel to
Las Vegas, NV to compete at the national American Regions Math League meet. The
students compete individually and in teams on a series of test that emphasize teamwork,
advanced precalculus problem-solving, and mathematical proofs.
The 30 students on the Washington ARML team are divided into two sub-teams, the
top fifteen of which compete in Division A, and the rest of which compete in Division
Students on the ARML team are expected to demonstrate a significant amount of leadership
and initiative toward preparing for the competition. Throughout the months prior
to the competition, WSMA partners with the Washington ARML team to host informal
practice sessions that prepare team members for the competition.
Students qualify to be a part of the team based primarily on their scores on state
and national competitions, such as the AMC, AIME, and Mu Alpha Theta State. The
team welcomes students of all age levels through the senior year of high school
– traditionally, several team members have been as young as 5th or 6th grade.
For more information about the team or to see if you or one of your students qualifies,
please contact Tom Norris, the head
coach of the Washington ARML team.
