High School Math Challenge

The USA Mathematical Talent Search (USAMTS) has posted its current set of challenge problems, the first of four rounds scheduled for the 2007-2008 school year. USAMTS is a free competition open to all United States middle school and high school students. Young mathematicians have a little over a month (until October 9) to write and send in solutions for the five questions.

According to the USAMTS website:

Student solutions to the USAMTS problems are graded by mathematicians and comments are returned to the students. Our goal is to help all students develop their problem solving skills, improve their technical writing abilities, and mature mathematically while having fun. We wish to foster not only insight, ingenuity and creativity, but also the virtue of perseverance, which is equally essential in scientific endeavors.

A mere five questions. How hard can it be? (Ha!)

  1. Hiya! Thanks for the link. I appreciate it, and reciprocated. You’re my first link, whee! πŸ™‚ I just moved my blog from its home on the local paper’s web site. One of the problems with writing for them (apart from the lack of $$$) was that I couldn’t exchange links. Now I can — and you’re the first! πŸ™‚ So thank you. Proud to link to such a smarty site.
