The Math Contest is a county-wide competition for 5-8th grade students in Santa Cruz County. This year, it occurred on Saturday May 7, 2022 from 8:45-11:00AM at Aptos High School (100 Mariner Way, Aptos CA 95003).
Now in its 55th year, the contest provides students with both a team competition and an individual competition – students are required to participate in both.
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 during an Awards Ceremony in the Tech Center at the COE on Monday, May 16 from 5:00-5:40 for grades 5-6, and 5:45-6:15 for students grades 7-8.
