Brief: Math League Competition

The math department will be hosting a math league competition Nov. 4 at 11 a.m. in BEH 1308. The top five students will be awarded.

The event is through the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges and according to AMATYC’s website, more than 165 colleges participate in the competition.

Math Professor Roya Furmuly said the competition is open to all Pierce students at the precalculus level. Students must bring their Pierce ID cards to participate.

According to Furmuly, the top five scorers will receive certificates and a free invitation to the brunch held at the graduation ceremony, and the top three students will also be awarded money prizes.

“We think it’s a good experience for the students,” Furmuly said. “The hope is to expose [the students] to what’s out there in the math world, so AMATYC works really hard for math to be the way it is and progress and offer a lot for two-year colleges.”
