MATH CONTESTS

 

Test Your Mathematics Skills Against Other Schools!

 

AMTNJ presents a High School Mathematics Contest and a Middle School Mathematics Contest every December. Schools register their math teams, and the actual tests are sent to the school. Everyone competes on the same day and all results are mailed back to AMTNJ.

The 2020 High School Mathematics Contest is cancelled, but if you click on the “High School Contest” link below, we have several enrichment resources available. 

The 2020 Middle School Mathematics Contest is available to ALL middle schools, no matter what model of instruction is used. Click on the “Middle School Contest” link below for more information.

For more information, contact AMTNJ at amtnj@juno.com.

High School Contest

AMTNJ HS Contest for 20-21

Due to the current uncertainties around schooling structures, a timed high school contest would not be equitable nor feasible for the 2020-2021 school year. Therefore, there will be no AMTNJ High School Contest during this academic year.

Instead, we recommend that math team advisors use some of the suggested enrichment resources listed here to engage students in exploration and new learning at the school level.  

Consider a choice board with two or more of the resources. Individual students or small groups may be asked to use a short video, a presentation, or an essay to communicate what they learned. We hope that you and your students find these engaging!
