The contest problem book; problems from the annual high school contests of the Mathematical Association of America by Charles T Salkind( Book )

80 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The annual high school contests have been sponsored since 1950 by the Mathematical Association of America and the Society of Actuaries, and later by Mu Alpha Theta (1965), the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (1967) and the Casulty Actuarial Society (1971). Problems from the contests during the period 1950-1960 are published in Volume 5 of the New Mathematical Library, and those for the 1961-1965 are published in Volume 17. The New Mathematical Library will continue to publish these contest problems from time-to-time; the present volume contains those from the period 1966-1972. The questions were compiled by Professor C.T. Salkind until his death, and since 1968 by Professor J.M. Earl,. In preparing this and the earlier Contest Problem Books the editors of the NML have expanded these solutions and added alternative solutions

The contest problem book IV : annual high school examinations, 1973-1982 by Ralph A Artino( Book )

4 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Annual High School Mathematics Examination (AHSME) began as a local contest in New York City in 1950. By 1960, 150,000 students throughout the United States and Canada took the AHSME. The 1982 Examination was administered to 418,000 participants in the United States and Canada and to 20,000 students in various countries of other continents. In the United States and Canada, one use of AHSME is to select approximately one hundred participants in the U.S.A. Mathematical Olympiad, and the Olympiads are used in the selection of a student team to represent the United States in the International Mathematical Olympiad. Since the difficulty of problems appearing in the AHSME varies over a wide range, they are a valuable teaching aid for all high school students interested in mathematics
