Check out the brand new 2nd editions of the GCTM State Mathematics Tournament Books, volumes 4 and 5!
These two books collect together the GCTM State Mathematics Tournament materials (written tests, individual ciphering, and pair ciphering) from the years 1998 through 2010. Full solutions to all problems are provided, and, in some cases, more than one solution is provided. Also included in each book is a topic index so that problem solvers may find any problem by topic. These books provide a crash course in problem solving and preparation for anyone invited to the state tournament, or for anyone that enjoys good problems. These books are a must for any Math Team sponsor! To purchase one of these books, simply click the corresponding link below:
(Note: all proceeds from the sales of these books goes directly to GCTM and funds the State Math Tournament and ARML team.)
"So where are the other volumes?"
Volume 3 (1991 - 1997) is expected to be released in the summer of 2015, and Volume 6 will hopefully be released in the summer of 2016. As for Volumes 1 & 2 (1977-1990), they have not been written... yet! You see, GCTM's own archive of State Tournament materials is lacking. As soon as it is complete, other volumes will appear. You can help! If you have old state tournaments (with ciphering) lying around in a box or file, please let us know! The years we require are 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, and the ciphering from 1984. Your contribution will be acknowledged in the respective volume. Thanks!
