USC Annual High School Mathematics Competition

The University of South Carolina gives an annual statewide mathematics competition. The morning session consists of an individual written contest for which the first place winner is awarded a Full-Tuition Scholarship for four years at USC and the second place winner a Half-Tuition Scholarship (both have some conditions on them). More information, including old written contests and recent solutions to written contests, are located on our USC High School Math Contest page.


Practice South Carolina ARML Mathematics Team Competitions

The following are old contests that I was involved with creating and which were used to help select the teams in South Carolina for the annual American Regions Mathematics League (ARML) competition at Penn State. The particular contests listed below were used for team competitions. Teams of 10 to 20 students each were asked to work on the problems for 20-30 minutes. They were observed and their individual performances as team members were noted.
