South Carolina ARML

The South Carolina ARML teams and the South Carolina All-State team are very closely related. In fact, the ARML teams are a subset of the All-State team. The All-State Team consists of about 60 students and out of these 60, over 30 mathletes are chosen to travel via bus to compete in the annual American Regions Mathematics League. Historically, until 2007, the team has traveled to Penn State University to compete, while in 2008 the team traveled to the University of Georgia.

How to Join

Historically, to join the SC All-State Team, one took a preliminary exam administered through their school. For more information, please contact

The preliminary exam is composed of 25 questions (non multiple choice), and is usually composed of easy to mid range AMC-12 level questions. From this exam, approximately 50-60 of the top scorers from the state are selected into the South Carolina All State Mathematics Team. After an individual is accepted into the SC All State Team, he or she is invited to one or two ARML practices which usually compose of individual tests, team tests, and a power round test.

In 2008, invitations to the SC All-State Math Team were based on one's performance in earlier competitions. The team met regularly in May to prepare for ARML.
