NYSMATYC Math League
About the NYSMATYC Math LeagueEach year, NYSMATYC holds two math league competitions in the fall and spring at two-year college campuses across New York State. Each college encourages students to take a timed exam consisting of approximately twenty questions, of which the top five scores are combined to form that school's team score. In the spring, the fall and spring scores are added, and one college is crowned champion for that academic year. Awards are distributed at the NYSMATYC Annual Conference in April.
Top individual competitors are honored at the Annual Conference as well. Typically, prizes include mathematical software generously donated by math league sponsors, as well as subscriptions to mathematical and scientific journals.
2012-13 WinnersCongratulations to Queensborough Community College for winning the 2012-13 Mathematics Competition, and to Shen, Yifei of LaGuardia Community College, for being the year's top finishing individual! Prizes for the top competitors were distributed at the NYSMATYC Annual Conference in Glens Falls, NY on April 12, 2013.
