IUPUI High School Math Contest
|Thank you to our 2014 High School Math Contest Sponsors|
Mu Alpha Theta is the national mathematics honor society for high school students
Donations cover the cost of the contest, cash awards, and scholarships.
Every year, the contest questions and a poster highlighting the contest theme are emailed to Indiana high schools and posted on this website. The questions are chosen so that all high school students—from freshmen through seniors—are able to utilize their math problem-solving skills. Every year, one question consists of an essay about an application of mathematics as it relates to the contest theme. Students work on the questions independently and mail in their solutions.
This contest is open to Indiana high school students (grades 9 - 12).
1) Solve the problem(s) and write each solution on a separate sheet of paper with no torn edges with your name and your school's name on each page. You may choose to solve one problem, several, or all of them. Cite your sources and references appropriately.
2) Complete the cover page (see your teacher or this web site) and include it with your submission.
3) Mail your entry by March due date (TBD):
