ARML Power Contest

Now in its twentieth year, the ARML Power Contest provides a group problem solving situation similar to the power question found at the annual ARML Competition. Each year the contest consists of two problem sets, one in the fall and the other in late winter. The mathematics level of the contest problems has been geared so that students in an honors class, in a math club, or on a math team can have a unique problem solving and mathematical writing experience. There is no limit to the size of the team, but the time for solving the problem set is limited to 45 minutes. The 2014–2015 ARML Power Contest will be run the weeks of November 1 through November 16 and January 24 through February 8. Coaches will receive the contest materials during the week prior to the above dates and may schedule the contest anytime during the designated two weeks. After completing the contest, the student solutions are then mailed back and are graded using a forty-point rubric. Trophies will be awarded to the top ten scoring teams at next year's ARML Competition.

The Harry and Ruth Ruderman Award is awarded at the ARML Annual Competition to the winning team of the Power Contest.
