Math League is a math competition for Grade 4-12 students in the US, Canada, and other countries.
The Math League was founded in 1977 by two high school mathematics teachers, Steven R. Conrad and Daniel Flegler. They both honored by President Ronald Reagan as recipients of Presidential awards for “Excellence in Mathematics Teaching.” Mr. Conrad and Mr. Flegler have been preparing contests for math students across North America since 1977. TMr. Conrad served for six years as a member of the committee which developed the SAT II for the College Board.
The purpose of the Math League Contests is to provide students “an enriching opportunity to participate in an academically-oriented activity” and to let students “gain recognition for mathematical achievement”
Math League runs three contest formats:
Students who score above 12 points in grades 4 and 5, and above 15 points in grades 6-8 are awarded a “Certificate of Merit.”
The Beaver Computing Challenge (BCC) introduces computer science to students. It is designed to get students with little or no previous experience excited about computing.
Students in Grade 6 or below are eligible for the Grade 5/6 BCC.
Students in Grade 8 or below are eligible for the Grade 7/8 BCC.
Students in Grade 10 or below are eligible for the Grade 9/10 BCC.
The Canadian Computing Competition (CCC) is a fun challenge for secondary school students with an interest in programming. It is an opportunity for students to test their ability in designing, understanding and implementing algorithms.
Junior Level — any student with elementary programming skills
Senior Level — any student with intermediate to advanced programming skills
Any student may choose to write any level (Junior or Senior) of the contest.
The Pascal, Cayley and Fermat Contests are an opportunity for students to have fun and to develop their mathematical problem solving ability.
The Fryer, Galois and Hypatia Math Contests are an opportunity for students to write a full-solution contest. They are fun way to develop mathematical problem solving skills through a written mathematical activity.
The Euclid Mathematics Contest is an opportunity for students to have fun and to develop their mathematical problem solving ability.
Students in their final year of secondary school or CÉGEP students and motivated students in lower grades.
