From the Math League website: 
"Math contests give students an educationally enriching opportunity to participate in an academically-oriented activity and to gain recognition for mathematical achievement. Our main goal is educational: we promote enjoyment and study of mathematics by organizing contests for grades 4-12. Our contests help to enrich mathematics programs. Each contest covers topics appropriate to the contest grade level. Our well-written questions cover a variety of difficulty ranges and involve topics of interest to above-average students. The key is to encourage students to enjoy a challenge and to learn from it to find problem-solving discussions stimulating. This challenge is what prompts many youngsters to enjoy puzzle books! The enrichment we provide is a positive experience for students."
Teacher Supervisor: Ms. Podio

Halton Math Contest

The Halton Math Contest is an exciting annual team math competition with real-time scoring that has been running since 2005.

Students choose their own teams (made up of 2 or 3 students) and are given 1.5 hours to complete six(five for seniors) problem-solving questions. Only the answer counts and teams are awarded points based on the time taken for the solution and the number of attempts.

Students can compete in the Junior category for Grade 9 and 10 students and the Senior category for Grade 11 and 12 students.

Dates and times  
A school competition will be organized in early May.
