The ARML (American Regions Math League) is a national competition held annually at four venues simultaneously on the Saturday following Memorial Day (late May or early June). Teams are entered by states (e.g. Connecticut), cities (e.g. New York City), regions (e.g. Lehigh Valley), high schools (e.g. Thomas Jefferson High School), and math circles (e.g. Westchester Math Circle). Any given organization may send multiple teams to the ARML. Each team consists of 15 students.
Connecticut sends three teams to the ARML each year. A bus picks up team members at various locations in the state on the Friday morning and takes the students to Penn State College, which is one of the locations for the ARML. Students are accommodated in dormitories and return to Connecticut on the Sunday morning.
The cost per student is around $250 for the trip; this is usually covered by the student’s school.
For the dates of this year’s ARML trip, please see here.
This year’s team members may find downloads and other information here.
Qualification for the Connecticut ARML team is achieved by taking a test, known as the ARML Runoff. Students in Fairfield County usually have a choice of two locations and times to take the test: one at Brunswick School and one at Staples High School, both in the first two weeks in March. The qualifying students are announced at the state match.
For dates and locations of this year’s ARML Runoff testing in Fairfield County, please see here. If you are a student and would like take the ARML Runoff, please speak to your coach or email CTARMLteam@gmail.com. If you attend school in Connecticut, but your school is not in FCML, please see here for dates and locations for the test (info available from mid-February, approximately) and contact CTARMLteam@gmail.com for further information.)
Students who qualify for the ARML team and encounter a timing conflict between the ARML and SATs may request to take the SAT at a later date, although many students avoid scheduling SATs for the ARML weekend. Please see here for further information about rescheduling the SAT.
