2019-2020 MathLeague Contest Schedule
For 8th Graders

All eighth graders are invited and strongly encouraged to complete in MathLeagues prestigious math contests. Eighth graders have two options, compete in the middle school contests, which feature math typically covered through eighth grade, or compete in both the middle and high school math contests. The high school contests feature math typically covered through twelfth grade. While many eighth graders will not be competitive in the high school contests, it is exceptional practice and will help them hone their math skills.

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). 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. 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 middle school math contests lead to a national middle school championship.

MathLeague High School math contests cover 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. The monthly high school contests lead to a state high school championship, then a national high school championship.

Registration includes the contest, practice resource materials, and invite to attend our free live online practice sessions each week.

Each regular monthly contest is $20 in advance or $30 at the door. The state and national championships are by invitation and registration and payment is similar and directly with MathLeague.
