## Is ARML prestigious?

ARML is a prestigious, national math tournament that is often called the “World Series of Mathematics Competitions”. The competition is held on the first Saturday after Memorial Day.

### How do you qualify for an ARML?

If the student turns 19 between January 1 and the competition dates he/she would be eligible as long as he/she did not graduate high school (K-12) prior to March 1 of the year of the competition. No student who graduated high school prior to March 1 of the year of the competition is eligible for ARML in any case.

**What is ARML test?**

The American Regions Math League (ARML) is a mathematical problem solving competition primarily for U.S. high school students.

**What is the ARML power round?**

The ARML Power Contest is proof-based, mirroring the power round in the main ARML competition and testing students’ mathematical skills as well as their ability to clearly explain their proofs and reasoning. Students who score well in the ARML Local competition in China will be invited to attend the ARML Power Contest.

## How hard is the HMMT?

The contest organizers state that, “HMMT, arguably one of the most difficult math competitions in the United States, is geared toward students who can comfortably and confidently solve 6 to 8 problems correctly on the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME).” As with most high school competitions.

### How does ARML relay work?

Each 3-member team has an opportunity to turn answers in at 3 minutes and at 6 minutes, and only the answer given by the third person counts. A team receives 5 points if the correct answer is turned in at 3 minutes, and 3 points at 6 minutes, for a total of 50 points possible between the two relay questions.

**How many people participate HMMT?**

The Harvard-MIT Math Tournament (HMMT) is a high school math contest held twice a year in Cambridge, MA. It is one of the largest in-person math contests in the world, with roughly 900 people competing at every meet. This team competes at the November meet, which is less challenging than the February meet.

**Where is Luke Robitaille going to college?**

## Are math competitions good or bad?

Despite all the benefits of math contests, they are not an unmitigated good. First of all, not all contests are designed well . Students shouldn’t take too seriously contests that greatly emphasize speed or memorization.

### Why are math competitions important?

Problem solving skills acquired through participating in math competitions have long lasting positive effects which will help a student through their education in college as well as professional or academic careers. As these competitions become tougher, the participation of girls including their achievements at higher levels drop significantly.

**What is International Math Competition?**
