Other Math Contests

This webpage was prepared by Dr. Kevin Hopkins as a resource page for himself and others.  Feel free to use it.  You should pay attention to information at these sites concerning copyright information.  If you find other information that you would like to contribute to add to any of these lists, please email me at khopkins@sbuniv.edu .  This site was last added to on August 4, 2014 (but it has been quite some time since all the links were verified to be sure they still work).  The links to users.sbuniv.edu no longer work, but I don't know how quickly I will move material that I have had archived there for years to a more accessible place.  In moving this page to google, some of the formatting got switched, so I apologize for inconsistent formatting, but think my time would be better spent on other things than trying to get consistent formatting.

·         Other Math Contests

·         Problem Books You Can Buy

·         Other Sources of Sample Problems

o        I tried to separate by problem level.  Many sites have multiple levels on them, so I would suggest start with the level you want, but if you run out of things to look at there, expand into the other levels to see if there are applicable problems there.

o        Elementary

o        Middle School

o        High School

o        Videos of Problems-many sites are now putting out videos of contest type problems being solved.

·         Summer Programs, that I know of, which emphasize math

The Mathematics Pentathlon is a program of interactive problem-solving games, supportive curricular and instructional activities, and assessment tools for ALL students in grades K-7. This motivational program strengthens basic math concepts and skills, aligns with National and State Mathematics Standards, and stimulates creative thinking while developing problem-solving skills. A critical feature of this program is the linkage of arithmetic reasoning with geometric/spatial and logical/scientific thinking. These strategic games, activities, and assessments develop an essential futuristic ability. Yearly National MP Tournaments are held in several states.

Math Pentathalon

The Mathematics Pentathlon is a program of interactive problem-solving games, supportive curricular and instructional activities, and assessment tools for ALL students in grades K-7. This motivational program strengthens basic math concepts and skills, aligns with National and State Mathematics Standards, and stimulates creative thinking while developing problem-solving skills. A critical feature of this program is the linkage of arithmetic reasoning with geometric/spatial and logical/scientific thinking. These strategic games, activities, and assessments develop an essential futuristic ability. Yearly National MP Tournaments are held in several states.
