Math Club

The LACC Math Club was formed during the fall semester of 2000. The purpose of the club is to encourage students to continue in the study of mathematics and excel in it. Because of their participation in the Math Club, several students have changed their majors to mathematics. Many of these students have transferred into the University of California and California State University system to continue their studies.

Math Club is a five-time National Champion in the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges (AMATYC) math competition. Eleven times in the past 14 years, LACC Math Club has finished in the top 4 of the approximately 400 colleges participating nationwide. We have had 5 students who ranked number one individually among ALL the thousands of the students who participated in this yearly event. Under the guidance of Dr. Anatoliy Nikolaychuk, LACC Math club continues its dominance.

The Math Club meets every Friday from 9:30am to 12noon in Franklin Hall 112 to work out solutions to difficult math problems on a group basis.


In this nationwide competition, the LACC team has placed 1st four times in the past decade.

Here are the years that LACC has placed in the top 5:

  • 2003: 3rd
  • 2004: 1st
  • 2006: 2nd
  • 2007: 1st
  • 2009: 1st
  • 2010: 1st


The student finishing first in the individual competition earns a $3,000 scholarship award (Charles Miller Memorial Scholarship). Five LACC Math Club members have won the $3,000 Grand Prize since the club was formed. These members include Dmitri Nedelchev (2002), Luana Raduca (2003), Jeong Min Seong (2004; now a Part-Time Math Professor at California State University, Los Angeles), Tedrick Leung (2007; transferred to MIT), and Haykaz Stepanyan (2010).
