Day One - Alex At The 2015 ARML Nationals



Song:  Rebirth

Group:  Two Steps From Hell



Although this was the first day of the competition...
it would not start until 6 PM.

We decided to go find a Japanese restaurant for a late lunch.




We had gone to an outdoor shopping complex for our late lunch...
then we were off to meet the math team at UNLV.


The team was ready to start the first phase of the competition.





They were moving from the dorms...
to the first testing room.






They used one classroom per team...
and each room was individually proctored.





In a few minutes...
they would begin the team power round.


While they were testing...
my wife and I had walked around some outside.





After the team round...
they were off to the Student Union for a fun round competition.


The 2015 NNV Math Club

This year's team is made up of the youngest average age they have ever had.

The highest grade level represented here is 2nd year high school.

The team is made up of 8th, 9th, and 10th graders...
of just the Reno area of Nevada...
which makes their later feat...
all the more impressive.

We wouldn't find out until the following day after
the completion of the last phase of the competition.












The team from China arrived and took their seats.



I believe this was the Philippines first year of competition.





After the first night's competition ended...
we ate a simple meal...
and headed off to bed.

The next morning's competition would start early.
