Mathematics competitions are typically aimed at middle and high school students and designed to promote problem-solving and analytics skills. Math contests are generally in-person and held at local schools, but there are certain contests that offer virtual submissions as well as in-person exams that accept kids who are not enrolled in the school.
Students who participate in math competitions benefit in multiple ways:
- Develop problem-solving and analytical skills
- Gain an advantage in the college application process
- Prepare for a variety of STEM – science, technology, engineering, and math – career paths
- Practice common core curriculum in a fun environment
