The Math League Contests are designed to build student interest and confidence in mathematics through solving worthwhile problems. Over 1 million students around the world participate in Math League Contests each year. Every contest has questions from different areas of mathematics, suitable for the grade level indicated. The questions range in difficulty from straightforward through moderate to challenging. Many students first develop an interest in mathematics through problem-solving activities such as these contests.
The 2018-2019 Math League involves students from grade 3 to 12 around the world and successive good results will be helpful for students when they apply for key high schools and universities across North America.
The great German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss once stated, it is not knowledge, but the act of learning, not possession but the act of getting there, which grants the greatest enjoyment. Let’s enjoy the fun of mathematics!
