The AMTNYS Seal
Adopted in 1957, designed by Mr. Richard Elfers, the mathematical symbols were used to indicate the four levels of instruction of the membership
+ (basic math) - for Elementary Schools
χ (algebra) - for Junior High Schools
i (complex numbers) - for Senior High Schools
∫ (the integral) - for Colleges and Universities
The lines were drawn to show the intersecting interests of a part of a particular sector of the whole, but all are bound by a perimeter of AMTNYS membership. The Association name is used as a frame for the whole seal.
