AMATYC Student Math League Exam
The AMATYC Student Math League Exam is held twice per academic year. It consists of
a twenty question exam with a mathematical requirement no greater than Pre-Calculus.
The problems are designed to be challenging and students are rewarded at the end of
the academic year for high scores on this exam. To learn more about the AMATYC Student
