This contest is for grade schools/junior high schools.  It is an individual competition consisting of 20 questions, to be completed in two 30 minute time periods.  The contest is given in-school late April – Early May.  Each school sets its own testing date and time within these guidelines.  The registration fee is $30 per school.  Once registered, there is no limit to the number of students who can participate from your school.

School Score

The top 10 individual scores from each school will count for the school total.


The top 10 individuals and top 10 schools will receive certificates and be recognized in the ICTM Bulletin.

Contest Questions

Questions reflect the NCTM Standards spirit of problem solving and the Common Core State Standards and encourage the use of calculators.  Problems are written to challenge student thinking, leading to further appreciation and exploration of mathematics.
