Art of Problem Solving Foundation

The Art of Problem Solving Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation created to providing resources and opportunities for avid students of mathematics. Note that the foundation is not the same thing as Art of Problem Solving itself, which is a company.

History

The Art of Problem Solving Foundation was established by Art of Problem Solving in 2004 as an income to publish the company's series of mathematical books, as well as fund its other ventures.

Projects

The following projects are funded by the foundation (Most of these are run by the Art of Problem Solving):

USAMTS

The Art of Problem Solving Foundation administers the United States of America Mathematical Talent Search (USAMTS), funded by a grant from the National Security Agency. USAMTS creator George Berzsenyi personally entrusted the Art of Problem Solving Foundation with the responsibility of carrying on the competition which began in 1989 and has served thousands of students.

Local Math Circles

The Art of Problem Solving Foundation funds the development of extracurricular math education programs at local schools in San Diego and Stanford. 2006 was the first year of this program. The Soli Deo Gloria Home Educators, an Atlanta-based math program, is also run by the foundation, as is the Charlotte Mathematics Club and the Teachers' Circle.

Colorado ARML

The Art of Problem Solving Foundation also administers the Colorado team for the American Regional Mathematics League (ARML).
