**Invitation**

##### Dear Math Coaches and Students,

This has been an unusual year. The pandemic brought disruption to peoples' lives around the world. We needed to change how we live, how we work, and how we learn. Faced with these challenges, we adapted and persevered. Schools were thrust into an unplanned experiment in online learning, and I am inspired by the extra effort that teachers, parents, and students put in to make it work. While we are unable to travel to China this summer to hold AMT as usual, we are building on the foundation of all of your hard work to adapt AMT into an online math tournament. On behalf of this summer's AMT Director Team, I would like to invite you to join us online for the 7th Annual ASDAN Math Tournament on August 16, 2020.

The ASDAN Math Tournament is led by a team of students and alumni from top US universities with deep experience in organizing math tournaments. AMT directors have written problems for contests such as the Stanford Math Tournament (SMT), Harvard-MIT Math Tournament (HMMT), Berkeley Math Tournament (BMT), and the Princeton University Math Competition (PUMaC).

Our director team brings together highlights from each of these contests into a single event that showcases the essence of a US math tournament.

The AMT is not only a math tournament -- it is also a venue for building a stronger global math community. This year's disruptions make the mission of AMT more important than ever before. We have been isolated away from each other during this pandemic, but we are not alone. The AMT community is bound by shared passions and by a shared belief that math is fun. This summer, we will meet to rekindle those connections, and I hope to see you there.
