Math Competitions are designed to stimulate interest and confidence in mathematics for students. The purpose of the contest is to provide recognition and encouragement to mathematically-talented high school students. Contest problems are designed to cover a range of mathematical knowledge for each grade level (grades 9 to 11). All of the problems in each round require no additional knowledge of mathematics beyond the grade level they test. Students compete for both team and individual awards. The contest continues a tradition that promotes good relations with local high schools, teachers, and students.
