**AMATYC CONTEST**

Each round consists of 20 multiple-choice questions on a variety of topics in precalculus mathematics: algebra, geometry, trigonometry, functions, graphing, probability, combinatorics and elementary statistics.

To take the exam, one needs to be a community college student at a participating community college. To take the exam at Mission College, one needs to be a Mission College student without any kind of college degree.

The top 5 scores in each round form the Mission College "team." The college, then competes informally with other community colleges around the state and the country. Members of the team receive certificates to honor their accomplishments.

At the end of the 2 rounds, the top five high scores (sum of Round 1 and Round 2 scores) receive scholarships from the Mission College Mathematics Department.
