Please join Dr. Titu Andreescu and Mathew Crawford as they offer an American Regions Mathematics League (ARML) session for students interested in learning more about the contest and wishing to be exposed to the types of problems they would encounter. This will be a very interactive math circle where students will have the opportunity to work together to solve interesting problems. Here is the plan for this first practice as detailed by Mathew Crawford:
- We plan to talk about our goals for the team.
- Discuss the rules and format for ARML, the primary event for the Metroplex Math Team
- Practice three of the four rounds from a past ARML contest (Individual, Team, and Relay)
We will practice the fourth ARML round (the Power Round) as the Metroplex Math Team participates in the ARML Power Contest the following weekend.
For this first contest, we’re picking an ARML contest that isn’t from the past few years both in hopes that fewer students have seen the problems and also because the problems from older contests are a little more accessible to beginners. We plan to use more recent practice problems as the team progresses.
Veterans of ARML are encouraged to show up to this first practice to help make new students comfortable with the process and also because leadership matters—and we will practice like we play, as a team.
If you know of talented high school students or extremely motivated younger students in the Dallas Metroplex area who may want to attend this event, please pass this link along.
