The Duke Math Meet is an annual math tournament hosted by Duke University in North Carolina and held in the style of the American Regions Math League. Teams come from across the Southeast United States to attend the competition.


The competition is loosely based on the format of ARML. Teams are of six students each. The test commences with a power round, a multi-part proof round that lasts for one hour. This is followed by a twenty-minute short-answer team round (ten questions), a lunch break, ten individual questions given in ten-minute pairs, a relay round (teams split into two groups of three; four points given for a question turned in in the first three minutes and two points for the second three minutes), a devil round (for fun, students are randomly arranged into teams and complete problems successively), and a tiebreaker round. No calculators are permitted during the competition.
