“ARML is the World Series of mathematics competitions, and placing so well after competing for just three years is pretty darn amazing,” said Sherry Griffin, President of the Board of NNVMath.
The 40th ARML competition took place simultaneously on May 29 & 30, 2015, at Penn State, UNLV, University of Iowa, and University of Georgia.
