This is our 6th year running monthly contests throughout the school year for grades 12 & below. We are very happy to offer contests specifically designed for grades 1-12. We are also pleased to offer a variety of contests as this gives participants exposure to different contest writers, problem wording, and topics. Some are more challenging than others and that is good as well. The more challenging contests remind them they have much to learn; the less challenging contests reminds them how much they have already learned.
Due to COVID, we have made the decision to run the full 2020-21 MathRocks! series of contests online AND offering the option for proctors to be emailed the rounds to print and administer in paper format.
Being online, makes our contests accessible to more Nevada students. This does reduce the variety of contests we are able to offer, however, each grade is guaranteed a minimum of a Number Sense round, and 2 individual rounds (20 minutes each for younger students and 30-45 minutes each for older students), and a Team round. If you don't see your school in the school listing, use Other in the registration window and then email Sherry@NNVMath.org with your school name. NOTE: An adult over the age of 18 is required to proctor the exam and must submit a phone number where they may be reached while proctoring the contest and an email address.
Proctors administering the contest rounds in paper format are responsible for ensuring the rules are followed and maintaining the integrity of the contest. Proctors need to submit all answer sheets (scan or photo) no later than 30 minutes after the contest window closes. An email will be sent Thursday evening to those registered with information on how to participate on paper.
We WILL offer an online Team round during each MathRocks! monthly contest. To participate, student must have a working camera and microphone on their computer OR on a SmartPhone. A non-family member will be assigned to proctor the team online both listening and watching the team members as they complete their round.
