The season consists of three contests to be given at your school (different contests for each grade level). Each school sets its own testing date and time for each contest within a 3-4 week window. School teams at each grade level (3-8) may consist of as few or as many students as you wish. Your school may register for as many grade levels as you wish. The registration fee is $45 per grade level, which includes three team and three individual contests.
The team competition consists of five members who work together on 20 questions for 25 minutes. A school may field as many five member teams as it wishes.
The individual competition consists of independent student work on 8 questions for 20 minutes.
Scores of the top two teams and top ten individuals count toward the school total.
Results are submitted via the ICTM Contest GSJH Portal, where results and statistics are posted following each contest. Results are password protected. Only coaches of participating schools are able to access this information.
Contest questions reflect the NCTM Standards spirit of problem solving, the Illinois State Standards, and encourage the use of calculators. The team competition promotes cooperation amongst students. Problems are written to challenge student thinking, leading to further appreciation and exploration of mathematics.
