San Marcos, TX - October 2, 2012
Mathworks at Texas State is holding its 11th annual Mathworks Math Contest (MMC) on October 31st, 2012. This contest is free and open to all middle school students in the state of Texas. The test consists of 15 open-ended questions that are designed by Texas State’s very own math professors.
Unlike other tests, the MMC is graded by the student’s shown work and not just the correct answer. The MMC is also a part of the selection process for Mathworks' Residential Junior Summer Math Camp. The high scorers in the Contest are invited to apply to this program. The top four scorers on the MMC are automatically accepted to the Residential Junior Summer Math Camp and then travel to Hong Kong later in the summer to participate in the international Primary Mathematics World Contest.
Mathworks seeks to provide students with opportunities beyond what schools traditionally offer. Mathworks camps and contests are engaging and provide high-level challenges to students of all mathematical backgrounds. In addition to gaining enriched academic opportunities, students develop perseverance, build confidence, and discover how smart they really can be!
Math teachers and math club sponsors interested in this year's Mathworks Math Contest can register online here, or contact the Mathworks office at 512-245-3439.
