General Information

  • Schools participate at their home sites, and each school chooses the day the team will participate in the contest. The contest is typically held the 2nd week in March. 
  • The meet consists of five sets of problems. For each of the first four problem sets, each individual student will attempt to solve problems worth 1, 3, and 5 points, respectively. For the team problem set, all team members will work cooperatively to solve 6 problems, each worth 10 points. Check out past Math Contests for more details on these events.
  • The time requirements are 15 minutes for each of the four individual events and 25 minutes for the team event.
  • The school team advisor corrects the individual events and all of the items on the team event, and tests and results are returned to WMC.
  • Each school may enter one team. A team consists of eight students (all from the same school) consisting of no more than four seniors for high school teams and four 8th grade students for middle school teams.
  • School enrollment is used to determine the appropriate class for each school as shown below. A school may compete in a higher classification upon request.
