Mathmatters Contest 2019

November 16, 2019

10 A.M.

Welcome to our 13th annual MathMatters Contest registration page. The primary goals of the contest are to stimulate interest and achievement in mathematics among elementary school students and to provide recognition of outstanding young mathematicians, their dedicated teachers, and their schools. This is the 13th year we have been organizing MathMatters for 5th and 6th graders.

This year, we are changing the rules a little bit to ensure a more leveled competition among the students. We will have separate tests for 5th and 6th graders. We made an agreement with Math League to utilize their questions this year. Each group will receive 25 questions and will have 40 minutes to answer them. All participants will receive a participation certificate and top ten students will receive awards. The following awards will be given to the top two students.
