Mathematics Challenge

 27th Annual Greater Southeast Nebraska Mathematics Challenge —
Virtual Event March 29 - March 31, 2021

Peru State college is proud to host the 27th annual mathematics challenge. This contest was started by area high school mathematics instructors to foster and develop mathematics education in southeast Nebraska. Many schools in the area have hosted the competition in the past and this year the contest will be hosted by Peru State College and Alpha Mu Omega, the PSC Mathematics Club. This year will be a little different as we are going to hold the competition virtually.

Participating schools will be divided into three divisions (large to small) based on enrollment figures for the school. Awards for best team score and best individual scores will be awarded at the end of the competition and will then be mailed to your school. 

Registration Form

General Information

Each school is allowed to enter a team of three students in each of the four subject areas (Geometry, Algebra, Precalculus and Calculus). Students should be enrolled in the class related to the subject level test for which they are registered.

Students are tested in two ways in this competition. The first is a forty-question multiple choice individual exam in the subject for which they registered. The second test is a team exam where the students answer open-ended questions in mathematics. Details on test format to follow. However, all tests will be done online.

The team members in each subject will compete individually and as a team with their group score and their scores from the individual test. Awards will be given in each division and subject for the three top individual scores on the written tests and the top team score (individual tests + team test) in each division and subject.

Calculators are not allowed on individual tests but are expected to be used in the group exam. Any ACT-approved calculator is allowed on the group exam.

The entry fee is only $10 per team, checks payable to PSC Math Club.
