    • Check both links to find your name.  This will be your team for the remainder of the year.  Both teams are meant to be equally competitive.
    • Make sure you know if you are a Regular or an Alternate for this meet.  Remember this changes for each meet depending on the tryout we do right before the meet.
    • Make sure you know your categories.  These are the three categories you will compete in for the meet.  Again, this changes for each meet.  I would make sure you really study your categories.  I recommend using the packets that can be found under the "Practice Packets" link.
      • Category 1 is Mystery.  Sorry, this is the only category you can't study for.
      • Category 2 is Geometry.
      • Category 3 is Number Theory.
      • Category 4 is Arithmetic.
      • Category 5 is Algebra.

    • No Calculator allowed. 
    • No help allowed.  
    • Click on your name and your password is the first 3 letters of your school email.  If your link does not work you can use Extra 1, 2 or 3 (No password).  Just email me which one you used, so I can match you with your score.  Thanks!

    Math Madness: Math Madness is a casual and informal competition program.  Mr. Ahearn will be running it this year, so if you want more information, feel free to email him at ama56@scasd.org

    Mathcounts: Mathcounts is a club for our most serious and dedicated mathletes.  Each year, we work hard to advance to the state and even to the national competition.  We are able to bring 12 students to our first competition. The school tryout will be on Friday, December 2, in the MNMS library from 4 - 7 pm.  If you join Mathcounts, you should expect to do extra competition math independently for approximately one hour per night as well as attend practices (most likely in Room 226 at MNMS) on Friday afternoons from 4:00-6:00) beginning December 10 through mid-March.  It’s a lot of work, but an absolutely amazing experience!  This year, Mathcounts is hoping to hold in-person competitions, but are reserving the possibility that they will be virtual depending on the state of the pandemic. You can also check out the official Mathcounts website to learn more about this program.
