For students in grades 7-12.
Students will start the day by taking a math exam. Exams include pre-algebra, algebra I, geometry, algebra ll, pre-calculus, and calculus. Each school can have up to two students registered for each exam. Once these exams are scored, the top 10 students on the algebra I, geometry, algebra II, and pre-calculus will receive certificates with the top three receiving medals. The top five students on the pre-algebra and calculus exams will receive certificates with the top three receiving medals.
Each exam consists of 40 multiple-choice questions. The scoring for each exam is as follows:
- Final score = 3 x (number right) – (number wrong) + 40
- Students will also have the opportunity to participate in Math Jeopardy. Each school will be represented by a team of four students. The top team from each jeopardy group will advance to the final Jeopardy round. The first place team will receive a prize.
Students will also have the opportunity to watch a planetarium show or participate in a math breakout room.
