The School of Science at St. Thomas University will host an intramural mathematics contest on November 02, 2013, at 10am, in the school of science building.  The goal of the competition is to encourage students' interest in math, develop their problem solving skills, and inspire them to excel in math.

During the contest, students are given 60 minutes to solve 30 problems without calculators.  The problems will cover a broad range of mathematics skills taught in precalculus (MAT 181 and MAT 182) or calculus (MAT 232 and MAT 233) classes. 
 
Students from all majors are welcome to take part in the contest.  Students who have not finish calculus (MAT 232/233) are eligible to participate in the precalculus contest. Students who took calculus classes (MAT 232/233) are eligible to for calculus contest.

The problems will have the level of difficulty of the state-wide, Florida Association of Mu Alpha Theta (FAMAT)
