This will give you information about the function and purpose of the Mathematics League. Math contests give students an educationally enriching opportunity to participate in an academically-oriented activity and to gain recognition for mathematical achievement. Our main goal is educational: we promote enjoyment and study of mathematics by organizing contests for grades 4-12. Our contests help to enrich mathematics programs. Each contest covers topics appropriate to the contest grade level. Our well-written questions cover a variety of difficulty ranges and involve topics of interest to above-average students. The key is to encourage students to enjoy a challenge and to learn from it to find problem-solving discussions stimulating. This challenge is what prompts many youngsters to enjoy puzzle books! The enrichment we provide is a positive experience for students.

On our HS contests, an interested 9th or 10th grader should be able to solve 3 to 5 of the 6 problems. Our 6th question is challenging for the most gifted students. For grades 4-8, all students can achieve success on the first half of our (annual) contests, while the last half should prove challenging to the best students. Our contests introduce students to new ideas. Teachers use our questions to present new topics or enhance discussions of old ones. Each school receives certificates of achievement for its highest scoring students on each grade level. For grades 6-8, we also award plaques at the regional and League levels. Although contests for grades 4, 5, and Algebra Course 1 are intra-school and non-competitive, each school receives a book to award to its highest-scoring student. On the 6th, 7th and 8th grade contests, each school receives a score report booklet listing the names of the 25 highest scoring students and schools in the League and the names of the 4 highest scoring students and schools on each level in each localized (county) contest region.
