| The format of the competition is as follows.
In the first session each student will have 60 minutes to answer 30 questions. Students will write each answer on an answer sheet. Be aware of several things.
Topics may include: addition, solving linear equations, ratio, exponents, mean/median/mode, arithmetic sequences, area, volume, multiplication, factors, division, distance, surface area, counting, venn diagrams, distance/rate/time, sequences, number bases, time, logarithms, place value, ordered pairs, palindromes, angles in polygons
In the second session students will compete in teams of four students. The team test consists of 4 rounds of 10 questions. Each round has a theme. The questions are based on Algebra, Geometry, Potpourri and Probability. The four team members will have 15 minutes to try to solve the 10 problems from each round. The team will submit one answer sheet.
