The Student Mathematics League is an international mathematics competition among two-year colleges. The competition consists of two rounds of individual tests. Each test is at the precalculus level and usually consists of 20 multiple choice questions. Two points are normally awarded for a correct response, zero points if question is left blank, and -1/2 point for an incorrect response. The five highest scores on each round constitutes a school's team score. Areas of mathematics covered on the tests include (but are not limited to) geometry, algebra, trigonometry, statistics, and probability.
