Practice Makes Purrfect

Are You Ready for Competition Math? Art of Doing Math hosts MathLeague’s official monthly contests in northern Nevada and specifically in the greater Reno, Sparks, and Lake Tahoe region. MathLeague is the largest competitive math organization for elementary, middle, and high school students in the United States with over 400 competitions involving over 30,000 students each year.

If you are not familiar with MathLeague contests, here is a quick summary:

  • Elementary School (grades 3-6th) covers math typically taught through 6th grade. The contest involves three individual tests and one team test. The individual tests are Number Sense (80 “mental math” questions in 10 minutes), Sprint (30 multiple choice questions in 40 minutes), and Target (four sets of two questions with 6 minutes each set; calculators allowed). The team test involves 10 questions over 20 minutes, calculators allowed. Each school can host multiple teams of up to four students each. Second graders are invited to compete with 3rd graders; 6th graders can and should compete in both elementary and middle school contests. The monthly elementary school contests lead to a state elementary school championship, then a national elementary school championship.
  • Middle School (grades 6-8th) covers math typically taught through 8th grade. The contest involves two individual tests, one team test, and a countdown round. The individual tests are Sprint (30 multiple choice questions in 40 minutes), and Target (four sets of two questions with 6 minutes each set; calculators allowed). The team test involves 10 questions over 20 minutes, calculators allowed. The Countdown Round is one question at a time to students who compete head-to-head. Each school can host multiple teams of up to four students each. Fifth graders are invited to complete with 6th graders. The monthly middle school contests lead to a national middle school championship.
  • High School (grades 9-12th) covers math typically taught through 12th grade. The contest involves a Power Question, which is a multi-part, proof-oriented question, a Team Test, which is a 10-question, twenty-minute test, a Sprint Round involving 30 questions over one hour, a Target Round with eight questions, addressed two at-a-time in 10 minute tests, and Relays which involve squads of up to three students. Eighth graders are invited to complete with 9th graders. The monthly high school contests lead to a state high school championship, then a national high school championship.
