Mathematics Department Chair August 29, 2012 School name school address city state zip Dear Chair: Greetings from Prof. David Calvis, Mathematics Coordinator at Baldwin-Wallace College. I am writing to announce that Baldwin-Wallace will be offering the AMC 10 and AMC 12 Contests of the American Mathematics Competition on the “B” date of Wednesday February 23, 2011. You and your talented mathematics students are invited here on that morning to compete in the appropriate Contest(s). The AMC Contests are perhaps the foremost high-school mathematics competitions in the country. Preparing for, and competing in, these contests will expose the participants to a new level of mathematical challenge, and inspire other students at your school to mathematical excellence. For the highest scorers, the AMC 10/12 are also the first step on the path toward the famous Mathematical Olympiads. Please visit the following web site for details about this event: http://www.bw.edu/academics/mth/amc Here you will find instructions on how to participate, as well as a tentative schedule for the morning. From the above page you can also link to the American Mathematics Competition web site, which has extensive information on every aspect of the Contests. Note that we can accommodate a maximum of 50 students, on a first come-first served basis, and that we would need notification of your intent to participate no later than December 1, 2010. Please note that students can participate here at B-W even if they take an AMC test on the earlier “A” date of February 8, 2011. We hope that your school will be represented at this offering of the AMC Contests. Please contact me if I can be of any assistance. Sincerely, Prof. David Calvis Baldwin-Wallace College 440 826 2201 firstname.lastname@example.org P.S. The outstanding Hard Problems movie (http://www.hardproblemsmovie.com/) documents the story of the team representing the U.S. in the 2006 International Mathematical Olympiad. I highly recommend this video as a means of inspiring your students to compete in the American Mathematics Competitions.
