Event Dates: December 03, 2011 09:30 AM to 3:30 PM

Saturday, Dec. 3, 2011., 9:30 am to 3:30 pm at The Evergreen State College

This exciting day of competition will feature four events (two individual events and two team events). Prizes will be awarded to teams and individuals.

This event is hosted by The Evergreen State College, with support from a grant from the National Science Foundation and tests provided by mathleague.org.

A new feature of this year’s tournament is that there will be two sets of team prizes, one for teams consisting only of Freshmen & Sophomores and one for overall teams.

Here is a postable flyer with some information about the tournament.

The tournament will consist of the following tests (for more information about these tests and how they’re scored, see http://mathleague.org/hstests.php): ·

  • Team Test (20 minutes for 10 problems, solved as a team, calculators allowed) ·
  • Target Test (individual; 8 problems, given 2 at a time with 10 minutes per pair of problems, no calculators) ·
  • Sprint Test (individual; 60 minutes for 30 multiple-choice problems, calculators allowed) ·
  • Relay Test (5 multi-part problems, each problem solved as a 3-person team in individual stages, no calculators)

All participants who score 50% or better in any single event at this tournament will be invited to the Washington Regional Championship, to be held at Evergreen on Saturday, April 21, 2012!
