About the Author:

Larry Zimmerman and Gil Kessler were the principal authors of the ARML (American Regions Mathematics League) contest problems from 1983 through 1994, and the NYSML (New York State Mathematics League) contest problems from 1983 through 1992. They are co-authors of the New York City Contest Problem Book and the book, NYSML/ARML Contests 1983–1988. They have been deeply involved with math competitions for over 30 years, and have much experience in training high ability secondary school students. Many of these students have received national recognition as AHSME winners, Westinghouse finalists, and USAMO and IMO participants. Gil, who began teaching in 1958, served as chairman of the Mathematics Department at Canarsie High School (in Brooklyn, New York) from 1972 until his retirement in 1988. During this time, he also coached math teams and created original contest materials for math leagues in New York City, New York State, and Massachusetts. Larry has been teaching mathematics at Brooklyn Technical High School, one of New York City’s specialized secondary schools, since 1967. In addition to coaching math teams, he has supervised numerous student research projects, including several that have won awards in the Westinghouse Science Talent Search. In 1986, he received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching. Larry and Gil have served as mathematics education consultants and frequently make presentations at conferences and conventions. Both are avid problemists, enthusiastic travelers, and accomplished pianists.
