Welcome to FLSAM

Who We Are

FLSAM is a group of math competitors across the state of Florida that come together to focus on higher-level mathematics and train for contests. If you're looking for something a little bit more than Mu Alpha Theta, then look no further.

What We Do

FLSAM currently sends representative teams to national tournaments including ARML, CMIMC, PUMaC, HMMT. Throughout the school year we hold a series of meetings across the state dedicated to learning and practicing the mathematics required of us to do well.

The next meeting is 10 or 17 December 2016 (depending on the region). Join your region's Facebook group today for more information!

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the 2016 FLSAM PUMaC Tryout!

Competition was tough this year--80 students took the tryout test! The tryout test was also especially difficult this year: on the two hour, 16 question test, the median was a 3, and the highest score was a 10. If you're looking for another stab at making the travel team, the HMMT/CMIMC Tryout is coming up in mid-December. Contact your Region's coordinator for the date. Good luck!

Congratulations to the PUMaC 2016 Florida team:

Florida A:
  • George Bentley
  • Jackson Blitz
  • Samuel Li
  • Richard Liu
  • Graham O'Donnell
  • Brian Reinhart
  • Saaketh Vedantam
  • Harish Vemuri
Florida B:
  • Cynthia Du
  • Jeffrey Lu
  • John Mistele
  • Kim Nguyen
  • Yuru Niu

Welcome to our new website! Please take a look around.

This is going to be our new FLSAM website from here on out. This site is being continually updated. Check back regularly for announcements and stuff.

Looking forward to a great year!

Sincerely, Your 2016-2017 Officers.

Founded in 2006 by a group of dedicated mathematics students, the Florida Student Association of Mathematics (FLSAM) serves to organize teams that will represent the state of Florida in various mathematics competitions at the state, regional, and national levels.

We select students from across the state to join teams and to compete in prestigious out-of-state mathematical competitions such as the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament, the Princeton University Math Competition, and the American Regions Math League. We also have written and hosted our own contests in the past including the Florida Math Challenge (results) and FLSAM Winter Contest. By doing so, FLSAM strives to reach its goal of building a culture of opportunity for mathematically talented students and expanding the mathematical involvement of students beyond that of what is typically taught in schools.

FLSAM is divided into regions equivalent to those of the Florida Association of Mu Alpha Theta to maximize the competitive spirit of its members. We encourage all those who are enthusiastic and passionate about mathematics to join!
