Math Competitions

 

What are Math Competitions?
 
Many people compete in sports; some people compete in Math.
 
Math competitions are competitive events where participants complete a math test to win prizes. The biggest difference between classwork and math competition questions is the problem-solving process. Competitions questions typically are built on skills that your student already understands, the ability to digest word questions and identify what skills to apply is the differentiator. Math contests help foster interest in math, hone problem solving skills and encourage students to value intellectual pursuits.
