GOALS

  • To stimulate enthusiasm and a love for Mathematics
  • To introduce important Mathematical concepts
  • To teach major strategies for problem solving
  • To develop Mathematical flexibility in solving problems
  • To strengthen Mathematical intuition
  • To foster Mathematical creativity and ingenuity
  • To provide for the satisfaction, joy, and thrill of meeting challenges

For Whom: 4-6th grade

Format:

  • Contests are taken in the participating school.
  • Each contest consists of five nonroutine problems.
  • Every problem requires careful mathematical thinking and has a time limit.
  • Each student, working alone, scores 1 point for each correct answer. Thus, a student may score up to 25 points per year.
  • Calculators are not permitted
  • When a problem introduces a more advanced concept, all necessary definitions are included.
  • The detailed solution for each problem usually names the strategy required.
  • Many solutions include follow-up problems and activities.
  • After each contest, results are submitted to us for scorekeeping. Our records will determine which awards are to be shipped after the last contest.

Team:

  • Each team has up to 35 students. (Many schools have more than one team.)
  • Only schools or homeschool associations, not individuals, may participate.
  • Each team competes in just one division.
  • Teams with members from more than one school are called “District Teams” or “Institute Teams” and are not eligible for team awards.
  • The team score is the sum of the ten highest individual scores, taken after the fifth contest.
