AMATYC Mathematics Contest at Truman College




Sample Contest Exams

The American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) sponsors an annual nation-wide mathematics contest for students in two-year colleges. The official AMATYC web site is a great resource for students and instructors. For additional resources, check out the official web site of the Student Mathematics League (SML).


Every calendar year, students of Truman College participate in the contest. The event is sponsored by faculty at the Mathematics Department.


Test Format:
Every academic year, the contest has two rounds: round one is in the fall semester, round two in the spring semester. Participation is not required in both rounds. Each round consists of a written examination. Contestants have one hour to answer approximately 20 short answer or multiple choice type questions. Contest problems are from a standard syllabus in college algebra and trigonometry and may involve topics in pre-calculus, algebra, trigonometry, synthetic and analytic geometry and probability. No partial credit is given. Scientific and graphing calculators (except TI -92) are allowed.


Eligibility to Compete:
All students may participate. The team score for Truman College will only include students who have not earned a two-year college or higher degree.


Date and Location of the Exam:
The next AMATYC Mathematics contest will take place in the spring semester of 2017. When further information will be available, it will be posted here.
