High School Mathematics Contest
Nicknamed the "Halloween Math Contest" because it is organized on the last Friday of October every year, this is a math contest for high school students.
The next contest will be on Friday October 25, 2013.
High school students.
5 problems, to be solved on site in 1.5 hours.
Individual Prizes (gift certificates) are awarded to the individual participants with the highest scores. A team trophy is awarded to the school which finishes with the highest score based on the sum of the scores of its top three participants. The name of the winning school is engraved on the trophy, and the school will keep it for display until the next year.
Each problem is graded out of 10 points, for a total of 50 points. Partial credit will be available. Each problem is graded independently by two graders. The score per problem is the average of the two scores. The total score of each participant is the sum of all the averages. Any correct solution receives full credit.
