Office of Student Life: Edison State College Math Club Test
The Euclidean Society, Edison State College's Math Club, is hosting round one of the Student Math League test Saturday, October 27, from 11:00 a.m. - noon in Building U (Room U-107) on the Lee Campus of Edison State College. The Student Math League is a national competition sponsored by the American Mathematical Association for Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) for students at the level of precalculus mathematics or higher. The competition consists of exams administered in two parts at individual college campuses across the country -- one sixty-minute exam in the fall, and one sixty-minute exam in the spring. Each exam consists of twenty questions, and students are allowed to use any scientific or graphing calculator that does not have a QWERTY (i.e., typewriter) keyboard.
Any student enrolled at Edison State College (full-time or part-time) may take the exams, but to be eligible for the prizes awarded by AMATYC (including a $3,000 scholarship for the highest score nationally), the student cannot be enrolled in high school or 3000 - 4000 level college mathematics courses and must take both exams. Locally, the three students with the highest scores on each exam from among ALL Edison State College students who take the exam will be awarded prizes -- $50 gift card for 1st, $25 gift card for 2nd, and $15 gift card for 3rd.
If you are interested in participating, you may receive sample tests with answers and/or register by notifying Professor Don Ransford at email@example.com by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 26, 2012.
