The Arkansas Council of Teachers of Mathematics (ACTM) is a professional association that supports and encourages good mathematics teaching. ACTM conducts annual regional and state mathematics contests that provide an opportunity for high school students to compete academically. Statewide there were 13 sites of which the University of Central Arkansas (UCA) was one. Overall, over 2000 students participated in one regional contest. The students compete in Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Tri/Precalculus, Calculus, and Statistics. The 2015 top three winners in each subject area at UCA are as follows:
Statistics 1) Kaleb Kassaw, Russellville High School 2) Erin McShane, Conway High School 3) Christian Curtis, Greenbrier School
Calculus 1) Yuzhou Li, Episcopal Collegiate School 2) Michael Fahr, Conway High School 3) Axel Pinard, Conway High School
