Dear Math Teachers:

The University of Georgia Department of Mathematics and Math Club will sponsor a High School Varsity

Mathematics Tournament on Saturday, October 20, 2018

and we hope you will participate. For copies of old tests and more details, please visit our web page at .

Each school may enter from one to three 4-student teams, who will compete in the usual written and ciphering rounds. (Fewer than four persons may compete as a team, with missing members being awarded scores of zero.) Individuals without a team can participate as well.

The entry charge is $35.00 per each team (not per school) or $15 for individuals participating without a team. (This includes the charge for a small lunch during the competition break.) For each chaperon over one per school, please add $5.

Each school is limited to 3 teams or 12 students total--no exceptions.

The registration form with the payment should be postmarked on or before October 1, 2018. Late registrations will be charged the late fee of $5 per student. Please make your check payable to UGA Math Club and send it to:

Julie McEver, Math Tournament Department of Mathematics, University of Georgia Athens GA 30602

Please enclose a (tentative) roster of your team(s) with your entry.


1. The ciphering round will consist of 10 problems. 10 points will be awarded for each correct answer given in two minutes.

2. The written test will consist of 25 multiple-choice problems of increasing difficulty, from relatively easy to very hard. 10 points will be awarded for each correct answer, 2 point for each question left unanswered, and 0 points for each incorrect answer.

3. The final round will be a team collaboration, with a total of 200 points.

No calculators will be allowed in any of the rounds. The individual winners will be determined on the basis of the first two rounds, and all three rounds will count towards the team competition.

We plan to follow the following schedule:

? 8:00-8:45 Registration

? 9:00-9:30 Ciphering

? 9:40-11:10 Written test

? 11:10-12:00 Refreshments

? 12:00-1:00 Team round

? 1:30-2:00 Awards ceremony


Four individual winners will be awarded a $1000 Charter Scholarship to attend UGA (subject to acceptance at UGA), for each of four years. The top five winners will get cash prizes, $100, $80, $60, $40 and $20 respectively. There will be also small prizes for other high-scoring individuals and best teams.
