It's been a while, but we're excited to re-launch The Math Contest with help from our friends at Casio Education. We encourage you to use their new free online math software, ClassPad.net, as your digital scratch paper while solving the problems on our site! We are still actively developing this project, so there may be some hiccups along the way. If you have a problem or issue to report, please let us know.
Encourage your students and/or friends to participate and compete by creating custom leaderboards for them to join. Click below to try it out now!

How The Math Contest Works
New problems will be posted each Monday at 8am Central, unless otherwise stated. In order to submit an answer to a problem, you must register an account.
Each user can only submit 1 answer per problem, per hour.
To submit a solution, use the Submit Answer link that's on each problem page. Correct answers submitted for any current problem will be eligible to earn points and have your name displayed on the site. If you correctly answer an archived problem your name will appear on the correct answer list, but no points will be awarded.
Unlike the old site, number-only answers are submitted (out to 2 decimal places) and correct/incorrect answers are determined immediately.
You can earn weekly points that are added to your monthly and annual totals. You can also join a custom leaderboard to leverage the power in numbers and compete against other groups!
