The Indiana Council of Teachers of Mathematics is pleased to inform you that the 2016 Indiana State Mathematics Contest will be held at 9:30 on a Saturday in April 23, 2016 at the sites listed below. This math contest has been approved by the Division of School Activities and the Indiana Association of School Principals. For more information or to be added to the mailing list, please contact a local site coordinator. We hope you will encourage your students to participate in the 2016 contest.
For more information, please contact Crystal Walcott
Registration will open in Feb.
You can register by clicking on the contest link in the box below or by selection "Upcoming Events" in the "About Us" section of the website.
There are five mathematics problem-solving tests. Each contains 28 to 40 multiple-choice questions; 90 minutes are allowed for students to work with the test. The categories are: Pre-Algebra, Algebra First Course/Integrated Math I, Geometry/Integrated Math II, Algebra Second Course/Integrated Math III, and Comprehensive. Questions for the first four categories may be related to the content identified in Indiana's academic standards or included in state-approved textbooks. The content of the Comprehensive category is drawn from pre-calculus mathematics including trigonometry, finite mathematics, simple linear algebra, probability, statistics, and analytic geometry.
The contest is open to any Middle School, Junior High School or Senior School student in the State of Indiana. Participation on the part of any interested student is encouraged; there is no limit to the number of participants from any school. A participant may take only one test each year.
· Participants in the Pre-Algebra category are limited to Middle School and Junior High School students who have not yet enrolled in Algebra or an integrated high school mathematics course;
· Students who are enrolled in either an Algebra First Course or Integrated Mathematics first course will register for the Algebra I/Integrated Math I test;
· Students enrolled in Geometry or Integrated Mathematics II will register for the Geometry/Integrated Math II test; and,
· Students enrolled in either Algebra Second Course or Integrated Mathematics III will register for the Algebra II/Integrated Math III test.
Students can participate only one time in each of the Algebra I First Course/Integrated Math I, Geometry/Integrated Math II, or Algebra II/Integrated Math III categories. Students can participate in the Pre-Algebra and Comprehensive categories more than once.
There is a non-refundable $5.00 participant fee for each student. Participants must be registered by their school, and the school must certify that the participants are currently enrolled in courses appropriate for the category. No special certification is required for the Comprehensive category.
Please register online and then mail the fees to the appropriate site coordinator where your students plan to attend the contest. CHECKS MUST BE MADE PAYABLE TO ICTM. Your registration is not complete until all fees have been received by the appropriate local site
