About the MoMathlon Middle School Math Tournament

 
Tournament Overview
Celebrate mathematics and team spirit by participating in the MoMathlon tournament, presented by the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath)!  Teachers who have brought teams before insist on returning year after year.  The opportunity for students to grow mathematically is unsurpassed; the problems are clever, engaging, and challenging; and the atmosphere is exciting for students and teachers alike.

The MoMathlon tournament takes place over the course of one school day.  Students put their thinking and teamwork skills to the test with three rounds of mathematical problems: the Individual Round, Team Round, and Mix-Up Rounds.  Following competition rounds, an expert educator will lead students in a discussion of the solutions, exploring new ways of reaching the answers and inviting students to share their problem-solving strategies with their fellow budding mathematicians.

Throughout the tournament day, students will socialize with friends, new and old, and enjoy mathematical brain teasers and engaging warm-up activities.  Finally, top scorers compete in an exciting Tiebreaker Round.  Winning teams are recognized with awards, and all students receive a certificate of participation to commemorate their hard work.
