    Mathematics Competitions
    Pennsylvania Math League Competition (PAML)
    Advised in Bellefonte by Mrs. Baughman, The Math League has Math Contests for Grades 4 through 8, Algebra 1 students, and High School Students. Over one million students from the United States and Canada participate in Math League Contests each year. Every contest has questions from different areas of mathematics. The goal is to encourage student interest and confidence in mathematics through solving worthwhile problems. Many students first develop an interest in mathematics through problem-solving activities such as these contests. Schools compete in statewide or multistate league competitions.
    At Bellefonte, students are invited to participate in the PAML competitions by their math teachers.  The guideline that is used for the invitation is a 95% or higher average in the current math class (above the Algebra 1 level).  Other students may be invited based on perceived mathematical aptitude.
