High School Contest

Grades 9-12

Coordinator: Sonya Land,

Any St. Louis area student interested in mathematics (mostly for grades 8-12) is welcome to join the Washington University Math Circle.  They meet on Sunday afternoons and have speakers talk about a different math topic each time.  This is a wonderful way to prepare for contests of all sorts.  Please click  here  for more information!

MCTM/ Information

All of the high school contests are contest sites. If you wish to know more about the setup of these events, please visit their website.  Students may attend only one of the sites listed each month. Students are encouraged to attend multiple sites throughout the year (a total of six) to practice contest questions even if they are already qualified for state.

Unless otherwise noted, the registration fee per student is $8 for any site listed below. Any student who attends an MCTM-sponsored site and qualifies for the state competition in any event will automatically receive a $5 discount for state registration in April. When a student qualifies for the state competition in any event, he or she is qualified to participate in ALL events at the state competition.

MCTM needs to increase its student registration fee for the state high school contest to accommodate increased fees from mathleague.  Starting in April 2018, the cost per student at the state high school contest will be $10.  Any student who qualifies for state at an MCTM-sponsored contest will automatically have a $5 discount from this registration fee; no physical paper coupons will be distributed at sites.  No additional discounts will be available for qualifying at more than one contest.  

If you are interested in hosting a site, MCTM will sponsor your site--reimbursing for copy/paper fees and up to $50 in food for graders and providing all of the awards for your site.  Please contact Sonya Land at if you are interested in hosting.
