University of Central Florida – Online Math Contest
As a high school student in Central Florida in the early 1990s, Arup Guha, the program founder, competed in many high school mathematics competitions. His love for mathematics came from these contests and he credits much of what he learned in high school to the Regional Mu Alpha Theta Contests, the Florida Mathematics League and the AMC, AIME and USAMO.
As a volunteer interviewer for MIT, Arup was shocked to find out that several area high schools did not even allow their students to compete in the AMC. As a college student, he always dreamed of setting up tutoring for students who wanted to reach the USAMO.
