  • Session 1, Individual Competitions: Each student will compete in one of the three areas: Algebra, Geometry and Pre-Calculus. Each team should have four students competing in algebra, four in geometry and four in Pre-Calculus. Student must be currently enrolled in the subject that they choose for the individual competition.
  • Session 2, Group Competitions: The group competitions will be of two types: Subject groups and Mixed groups. Each group of four students competing in the same subject area in the individual competition will send one representative to the mixed group and the remaining three to the subject group. For example, the four students who compete in Algebra in the individual competition, will send one student to the mixed group and three to the Algebra subject group.
      • Mixed Groups: Three students will form the mixed group. Students in this group will solve problems that require knowledge of algebra, geometry and pre-calculus. This competition will assess how well students can cooperatively apply their knowledge in solving mathematical problems.
      • Subject Groups: There will be three subject groups Algebra, Geometry and Pre-Calculus, consisting of three students each. Students in these groups will solve challenging problems in their respective subject areas.

SCORING:  The score for each team will be obtained by adding up the scores of all the members from the individual competitions and the scores of the team’s group events.
