2019-2020 MathLeague Contest Schedule
For 5th Graders

All fifth graders are invited and strongly encouraged to complete in MathLeagues prestigious math contests. Fifth graders have two options, compete in the elementary school contests, which feature math typically covered through sixth grade, or compete in both the elementary school and middle school math contests. The middle school contests feature math typically covered through eighth grade. While many fifth graders will not be competitive in the middle school contests, it is exceptional practice and will help them hone their math skills. Last year fifth graders routinely finished among the top five at the middle school contests.

The MathLeague Elementary School math contests cover 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 or squads of up to four students each. Where a school does not formally have a math club or host a team, the participating students from the school can organize themselves in squads of up to four students to compete in the team round. The six monthly elementary school math contests lead to a state elementary school math championship, then a national elementary school math championship.

The MathLeague Middle School math contests cover 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).
