The SML exam is a challenging, precalculus level test in mathematics which is offered each semester at over 100 community colleges in the US by AMATYC (the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges). There are 20 multiple-choice questions. Students may use a graphing calculator. Each student has one hour to complete the test. (You are not expected to solve all of the problems—50% is a fairly good score. Any COC student who has taken or is taking Math 103, 104, 211, or any higher math course is eligible. By taking the SML you have an opportunity to compete with other math students both here at COC and across the country. By scoring well, you can contribute to COC’s team score. If you do extremely well, you can compete for prizes including a $3000 scholarship. The top 3 COC students will receive prizes totaling $200.
Interested students were asked to sign up with their professor or to contact Professor Gilmore directly.
