Student Math League Scoreboard Reports
American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges (AMATYC)
STUDENT MATHEMATICS LEAGUE (SML)
PORTLAND COMMUNTIY COLLEGE
Any two-year college is eligible to enter a team of 5 or more students, or individual students if fewer than 5 students wish to compete. Any student at a two-year college who has not earned a two-year college or higher degree is eligible to compete (part-time students are eligible).
ELIGIBILITY FOR THE GRAND PRIZE
In addition to meeting general eligibility requirements, a student must have successfully completed a minimum of 12 semester hours (or equivalent quarter hours) of community college (two-year college) coursework by the end of the academic term in which the second exam is given. Students enrolled in a four-year institution or in high school at the time of the competition are NOT eligible for the grand prize, nor are previous recipients of the grand prize. Official transcripts and a letter signed by the student and local moderator certifying eligibility will be required in order to award the prize. The scholarship must be used within two years of its award at the conference; if it is not, two scholarships will be awarded in the next year’s competition.
The level of the tests is precalculus mathematics. Questions are from a standard syllabus in College Algebra and Trigonometry and may involve precalculus algebra, trigonometry, synthetic and analytic geometry, and probability; questions that are completely self-contained may be included as well. All questions are short-answer or multiple choice (multiple choice questions will have at least 4 response choices). No partial credit is allowed in scoring. The test will be sent to each participating school to arrive prior to the test window. Printing errors that are not corrected prior to the test period will invalidate that particular question, and all students will be marked correct for that question.

Students are permitted to use any scientific or graphics calculator that does not have a QWERTY (i.e. typewriter) keyboard. (no TI-92, TI-92plus, Voyage 200, or Casio Classpad).
To be eligible for an
individual award, a participant must compete on both exams.
The team score consists of the best five scores on the exam in
each round. The individual student team members may change
from exam to exam. A team may consist of fewer than five
students if necessary, and in this case the team's score is
the sum of the scores of the students participating. The grand
prize for the qualified individual with the highest total
score on the two exams is a $3,000 scholarship to be used to
continue his or her education at an accredited four-year
institution. In the case of a tie for the grand prize, the
scholarship will be evenly divided. The top ten ranking
individuals will receive appropriate prizes of a mathematical
nature, as will the five highest ranking members of the first
place team. The five highest ranking teams, as well as the
team and individual champions from each of AMATYC's eight
regions, will receive plaques at the following year’s AMATYC
annual conference. In addition, certificates of merit will be
awarded to the top five individuals from each participating
school. The prizes, plaques, and certificates are sponsored by
the AMERICAN MATHEMATICAL ASSOCIATION OF TWO-YEAR
COLLEGES. Additionally, Portland Community College will
offer prizes for the highest scores within the district after
