Since 1994, the ARML Power Contest has provided a challenging group problem solving setting similar to the power question found at the annual ARML competition.

Twice each year, in the fall and in the spring, teams tackle a set of problems surrounding a single theme or developing a mathematical idea or theorem. Problems are a mix of computations, written proofs, searches for counterexamples, and anything else that helps develop the theme. The level of the mathematics is such that a small team of inexperienced students can work a few of the problems, while a large team of experienced mathletes will still be challenged with the details of the proofs. There is no limit on the size of the team that can compete, and larger teams will likely be needed to get to all the parts of the problem set within the 45 minutes time limit.

While any size team may compete, larger teams of more experienced mathletes will have a much better chance to complete all the problems and obtain full marks.  Clarity of explanations, accurate mathematics, and complete proofs are necessary to earn the highest possible score.

Papers are graded by experienced mathematically trained graders who check accuracy of computations and correctness of proofs.  Teams that do not follow instructions or whose work is difficult to read can be penalized.

This competition has not yet listed it's awards.

Entry Fee: $50

Eligibility:
Competing students must be in the 12th grade or lower. They cannot have graduated from high school in a prior academic year, and they must be 18 years or younger as of Dec. 31st of the academic year of the ARML competition. Violations of this rule will result in the disqualification of the team the student is on. In addition, each team must draw its students from a well-defined geographic area. No two teams can draw students from overlapping areas. <span style="font-weight: 400;">Any organization can sponsor a team; individual competitors may only belong to one team.  Teams can be organized by state, city, region, school, math club, etc. </span>

Process

While any size team may compete, larger teams of more experienced mathletes will have a much better chance to complete all the problems and obtain full marks.  Clarity of explanations, accurate mathematics, and complete proofs are necessary to earn the highest possible score.

Criteria

Papers are graded by experienced mathematically trained graders who check accuracy of computations and correctness of proofs.  Teams that do not follow instructions or whose work is difficult to read can be penalized.
