Virtual Math Festival

Due to school closures, we have cancelled the Math Contest this year. Instead, we offered a Virtual Math Festival. 
The Virtual Math Festival will offer students in grades 5-8 the opportunity to participate in advanced and thought-provoking mathematics in an online, social and cooperative atmosphere. Students will log onto an online ZOOM conversation, and then choose from different online breakout rooms that offer problems, games and/or puzzles with mathematical themes.
      As students visit the different breakout rooms, they will work with other students on the mathematics problem or puzzle as long as they wish, while an online facilitator provides support and encouragement. Students may choose to visit other rooms at any time.

The Math Contest is a county-wide competition for 5-8th grade students in Santa Cruz County. Now in its 51st year, the contest provides students with both a team competition and an individual test format.

The team competition requires students work together using problem-solving strategies, showing work and providing clear and detailed explanations. The individual test for all grade levels uses a free response format.

Students receive certificates of participation and contest winners receive achievement medals and special awards for the top three winners.
