Math League

Math League is a mathematics competition for elementary, middle school, and high school students in the United States. The Math League was founded in 1977 by two high school mathematics teachers, Steven R. Conrad and Daniel Flegler. Math Leagues, Inc. publishes old contests through a series of books entitled Math League Press.

Math League runs three contest formats:

  • Grades 4-5: 30 multiple-choice questions to solve in 30 minutes, covering arithmetic and basic principles
  • Grades 6-8: 35 multiple-choice questions to solve in 30 minutes, covering advanced arithmetic and basic topics in geometry and algebra
  • Grades 9-12: Series of 6 contests. Each contest contains 6 short-answer questions to solve in 30 minutes, covering geometry, algebra, trigonometry, and other advanced pre-calculus topics.

Students who score above 25 points in grades 4 and 5, and above 30 points in grades 6-8 are awarded a "Certificate of Merit."
