Math Competition 2020 Canceled

After thoughtful discussion and consultation with experts, RIT/NTID has decided to cancel the 2020 Math Competition in order to mitigate the potential spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We made this difficult decision to ensure the safety of your teams and everyone in our campus community.

All teams who paid their $100 team fee will receive a full refund. We will process those refunds in the coming weeks.

2020 Math Competition


How to Prepare

Student participating in competitionUse the MATHCOUNTS® School Handbook. The handbook is used by schools all across the U.S. We encourage you to become familiar with the rules, competition structure, scoring and forms of answers. This publication mirrors the difficulty level you can expect to see in our competition. It is divided into four rounds: Sprint Round, Target Round, Team Round, and the Countdown Round. We suggest you and your students become familiar with each round.

The fifth round, the Team Countdown Round was created by RIT, not MATHCOUNTS®, so information will not be in the MATHCOUNTS® handbook. Please go to the Rounds and Rules page to learn more.

The official MATHCOUNTS® website provides problems from previous competitions (at each level of competition). Practice problems can also be found in the school handbook.

“Warm-up” practice problems in the handbook will help students prepare for the Sprint Round. “Workout” practice problems will help students prepare for the Target Round. Calculators are allowed in all but the Individual Countdown Round.
