This will give you information about the function and purpose of the Mathematics League. Math contests give students an educationally enriching opportunity to participate in an academicallyoriented activity and to gain recognition for mathematical achievement. Our main goal is educational: we promote enjoyment and study of mathematics by organizing contests for grades 412. Our contests help to enrich mathematics programs. Each contest covers topics appropriate to the contest grade level. Our wellwritten questions cover a variety of difficulty ranges and involve topics of interest to aboveaverage students. The key is to encourage students to enjoy a challenge and to learn from it to find problemsolving discussions stimulating. This challenge is what prompts many youngsters to enjoy puzzle books! The enrichment we provide is a positive experience for students.
Our main concern is preparing items that stimulate class discussions. Steve Conrad, Dan Flegler, and Adam Raichel have primary authorship responsibility. Steve Conrad was problem editor of The Mathematics Student, an official journal of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. He has served on the College Board's Mathematics SAT II Test Development Committee and has spoken at numerous NCTM National and regional conventions. Adam Raichel is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard University’s Law School. Our consultants include Michael Selby (retired) of the University of Windsor, Ontario; Paul Campbell of Beloit College, Beloit, WI; Martin Badoian, former math coordinator for Canton, MA; Dick Gibbs (retired) of Ft. Lewis College, Durango, CO. Dan Flegler, winner of Princeton University’s Distinguished Teaching award is the former math coordinator for Waldwick, N.J. Mr. Badoian, Mr. Flegler, and Mr. Conrad have each received Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching from President Reagan. Mr. Conrad received an award from the Mathematical Association of America for Distinguished High School Teaching. Prof. Campbell is an editor of Mathematics Magazine and the UMAP Journal, official journals of the Mathematical Association of America. Prof. Gibbs has been a problem editor of School Science and Mathematics and chairman of the AHSME contest committee. Mr. Flegler is a former associate editor of the New Jersey Mathematics Teacher. Mr. Badoian was an official of Mathcounts.
On our HS contests, an interested 9th or 10th grader should be able to solve 3 to 5 of the 6 problems. Our 6th question is challenging for the most gifted students. For grades 48, all students can achieve success on the first half of our (annual) contests, while the last half should prove challenging to the best students. Our contests introduce students to new ideas. Teachers use our questions to present new topics or enhance discussions of old ones. Each school receives certificates of achievement for its highest scoring students on each grade level. For grades 68, we also award plaques at the regional and League levels. Although contests for grades 4, 5, and Algebra Course 1 are intraschool and noncompetitive, each school receives a book to award to its highestscoring student. On the 6th, 7th and 8th grade contests, each school receives a score report booklet listing the names of the 25 highest scoring students and schools in the League and the names of the 4 highest scoring students and schools on each level in each localized (county) contest region.

Hello, Dan
Thank you for all your time, effort in accomplishing such a great event. My son, Markab not only enjoys the competition but also loves the stay in the camp. Thanks again.

Dan:
Thank you and the rest of the Math League / Standford team for organizing such a wonderful tournament. Fred had a tremendous experience and made a lot of new friends over the course of the program.
In terms of future tournaments, I was wondering whether Math League will consider rotating among different locations to attract the returning participants. Another thing to consider will be to extend the program to more than one week. Fred obviously felt that one week was too short and he wished that the tournament could have been longer.
Overall this first national tournament is a great success. Thank you again for allowing Fred to participate as a 5th grader. Kind regards,
Yidan (Fred's Mom)
Dan,
Thanks again. You guys did a great job.
You are far beyond me on the math questions, but I think it was appropriate for the students you chose. Similarly, I think the choice of lecture topics gave a lot of background to these kids. The only thing that I might suggest is to have a couple more lectures on topics where math is “applied” to another field—economics/game theory, actuarial sciences, operations research, investing/risk, etc. Easy for me to suggest, but not as easy for you to execute, so feel free to use or discard these thoughts.
Also, there are some “summer camp fairs” where you may want to have a physical presence to let people know about the program—maybe by turning the schedule/pictures from this year into more of a brochure? It might also serve as another advertising vehicle for your contests.
Best Regards,
Brian
Hi Dan,
Thank you for all the courses and programs you organized this year at Stanford University. I had a really wonderful time at the program.
It has been a privilege for me to attend the final contest, I would wish to come back some day.
And especially thanks for all the books that you signed for me. They are also very special to me because of Steve's and your signature.
Would you say thanks to Steve for me?
Thank you again and see you some day!
From Patrick.
Dear Dan,
Wouldn't it be more fun if you hold next year's program in Beijing, China? That way, the participants from North America and from Europe will get a chance to explore China.
By the way, thanks for giving me a chance to visit the Stanford Campus. I had a great time there.
Best regards,
Amily
Dan, thank you very much to everyone for great program and your help with everything!
Michael enjoyed it a lot and is looking forward to come next year again!

Hello Dan,
I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous program you and a few very special others put together for our children this summer. Keaton had the time of his life at Stanford this summer and came away with a deeper and richer appreciation for math, its applications, and the wonderful people, both younger and older, who inspired him and shared his love of math. Everything was top notch, from the lectures to Rick Sommer and his dedicated, enthusiastic staff. The food, lodgings, surroundings, and facilities were beyond compare in Keaton's estimation. He told me that Stanford is where he would like to attend on a more permanent basis some day. He was very sad to leave and felt a strong sense of belonging and a deep sense of affinity for the other students.
It was wonderful to finally get the opportunity to meet you in person!! Thank you for taking the time out of your busy life and schedule to make the trip to California. It was quite a thrill for Keaton and me to see you in real time.
I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to write to you with my gratitude for what you made possible, but it seems it has been very hectic with school and work starting. I want to convey my sincere appreciation for what you and your colleagues did to make the tournaments and the learning situations such a rewarding time for my son. Now that we've had some time to reflect on the time spent at Stanford, Keaton and I feel it was a truly amazing experience, and one he will never forget.
Thank you again and I wish you and your family all the best for the year ahead. Please keep us posted on your future mathematical endeavors!
With warm regards,
Keaton, Nancy, and Randy Ollech
