Mathworks hosting statewide middle school math contest
Texas State University

October, 2012

The Mathworks program at Texas State University-San Marcos is holding its 11th annual Mathworks Math Contest (MMC) Oct. 31.

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 math faculty.

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 Mathwork’s Residential Junior Summer Math Camp. The high scorers on the test 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. Their camps and contests are engaging and provide high-level challenges to students of all mathematical backgrounds. In addition to enriched academic opportunities, students learn perseverance and build confidence.

Interested math teachers/coaches should register on line at: www.txstate.edu/mathworks/camps/pmwc/mathworks-math-contest.html or contact Mathworks at (512) 245-3439.
