Introduction




MATHLEAGUE.ORG was founded in 1997 by the famous American mathematics educator MR. Tim Sanders, who is the former chairman of the famous American mathematics challenge ARML (American Regional Mathematics League). He once taught at Stanford University and served as a mentor for the Stanford Summer Education Program for Gifted Youth. Years of mathematics teaching and challenge coaching experience make Tim believe that mathematics challenges are the most important way to develop students' mathematical ability and interest. Tim hopes that students will experience the fun of mathematics from a younger age and help overcome the "fear" of mathematics. Therefore, he founded the math league. As the largest network of local and state math challenges at the elementary, middle, and high school levels in the United States and abroad, mathleague.org runs more than 400 contests globally and reaches over 30,000 students each year.
