In collaboration with Storming Robots, Raritan Valley Math Group (RVMG) will host its First Annual Raritan Valley Math Group Math Contest on Saturday, March 18, 2017 beginning at 10:00 am at Storming Robots in Branchburg, NJ. The contest is open to any New Jersey student enrolled in grades 6-12. Homeschoolers are also welcome.
The contest will be 90 minutes long, with no calculator use permitted. Problems will be similar in difficulty to those found on the high school level AMC and AIME math contests. At a minimum, students should have completed Algebra 1. Following the assessment there will be a break for lunch (students may bring their own or pre-order at registration from a variety of Italian options, including pizza, for an additional fee) followed by a choice of activities including speed chess, Sudoku challenges, AI and Algorithms presentations, and spider bot demonstrations. The contest ends with an awards ceremony where the top middle and high school scorers will be given special prizes. All students will receive a participation certificate.
Students who score very well on the contest may be invited to join RVMG for its weekly math meetings. RVMG’s meetings explore areas of math that are beyond the typical scope of the public school sequence with the purpose of deepening mathematical understanding and problem solving. In addition, a subset of RMVG students, the Raritan Valley Math Team (RVMT), attends national math competitions, including the American Regions Mathematics League (ARML), Harvard-MIT Mathematics Tournament (HMMT), and Princeton University Mathematics Competition (PUMaC). In November 2016, RVMT finished in eighth place overall (out of 146 teams) and received sixth place in the team round at HMMT.
Pre-registration is required as seats are limited. Registration is $30 per student. Current Storming Robots members save 20% off registration. For more information or to register, visit http://math.stormingrobots.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 908-595-1010.
