Join the NYC Math Team


Are you interested in math and problem solving? You can easily get involved at your school. Here are a few things you can do to get more involved.

All of these can help to prepare you better for more challenging competitions and to hopefully, one day, be a member of the NYC Math Team. More importantly, they give you opportunities to meet other students who are also interested in math and problem solving.

NYC Math Team Eligibility

To be eligible, students must live and attend school (public or private) within the five boroughs of New York City. Students forfeit their eligibility by attending competitions as part of other teams from outside of NYC. For example, if a student were to attend the ARML competition as a member of the Bergen County Academy team, then they would not be eligible to be selected for the NYC Math Team. Students may attend competitions as part of their school’s team without jeopardizing their eligibility for the NYC Math Team.

NYC Math Team Selection

Selection is done in the Spring of each year. To be considered, students should have taken the most recent AMC 10 or AMC 12 exam and know their scores. If you are interested in joining the team, be sure to take the AMC 10/12. To improve your chances, you can take both the AMC 10A/12A and the AMC 10B/12B. Be sure to prepare in advance by doing past AMC exams, which you can find at the Art of Problem Solving Website.

After you have received your AMC score, you can email the coach of the NYC Math Team at: . Scores will be verified with the center where you took the exam. Many of the students on the NYC Math Team will have at least made Honor Roll for the AMC exam, though this is not a strict criteria. It is also important that you are an active member of your school’s math team, if it has one.

Note for 2023: AMC 10A/12A scores will not be taken into consideration for NYC Math Team due to the scale of the leak of questions prior to the exam
