The D. E. Shaw group is a global investment and technology development firm with an international reputation for financial innovation and technological leadership. Headquartered in New York, the D. E. Shaw group encompasses a number of closely related entities with more than 1,000 employees and approximately $32 billion in aggregate investment capital. Our activities range from deployment of investment strategies based on mathematical models or human expertise to the acquisition of existing companies and the financing or development of new ones. The firm employs a disproportionate number of the world's leading computer scientists and mathematicians, many of whom joined the firm directly from leading college and university math and science programs, and a number of whom are former ARML competitors. Given the challenges of its work, the firm has a particular interest in promoting excellence in mathematics. For this reason, the D. E. Shaw group is especially proud of its years-long association with ARML and of its current sponsorship of the national competition.

PROMYS is designed to encourage motivated high school students to explore the creative world of mathematics. Through their intensive efforts to solve a large assortment of unusually challenging problems in Number Theory, participants practice the art of mathematical discovery – numerical exploration, formulation and critique of conjectures, and techniques of proof and generalization. More experienced participants may also study abstract algebra, combinatorics, or geometry. Problem sets are accompanied by daily lectures given by research mathematicians.



Star League (www.starleague.us) offers AP and K-12 school support courses, tutoring, olympiad courses (A-STAR) in math and computer science, and academic camps for college-bound students. We guide students into their dream colleges through proactive planning and support services in advance of every turn of the journey. This year Star League will be providing $500 discount for all ARML participants for its residential math camp courses which will be held at University of California, Irvine. The math camp at UCI will offer MathCounts, AMC-10/12, and AIME courses.

For this goal, we identify, recognize and reward excellence in mathematics through a serics of national contests called the American Mathematics Contest 8 (AMC 8), the American Mathematics Contest 10 (AMC 10), the American Mathematics Contest 12 (AMC 12), the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME), and the United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO).



Canada/USA Mathcamp is a five-week summer program for mathematically talented students. Each student at Mathcamp designs a program of study reflecting his or her own mathematical interests and ambitions. There are at least four classes to choose from at any time, on a variety of levels and topics. Classes are interactive, with students actively engaged in mathematical discovery. Students can also attend lectures by visiting mathematicians, do an independent project, and participate in problem-solving competitions.



Pi Mu Epsilon (www.pme-math.org) is dedicated to the promotion of mathematics and recognition of students who successfully pursue mathematical understanding. To promote mathematics, the National Pi Mu Epsilon Council sponsors an annual conference in conjunction with the Mathematics Association of America's (MAA) annual MathFest. Traditionally, this conference occurs the first weekend of August. Undergraduate members of Pi Mu Epsilon are encouraged to give a 15 minute presentation on a mathematical topic of interest. The content of the presentation does not have to include original research. Although some presentations may impart new results, the majority often show results of exploration of a topic beyond what is traditionally covered in an undergraduate class. Feel free to contact an officer to verify a topic is suitable for presentation.
