Welcome to our 14th annual MathMatters Contest registration page. The primary goals of the contest are to stimulate interest and achievement in mathematics among elementary school students and to provide recognition of outstanding young mathematicians, their dedicated teachers, and their schools. This is the 14th year we have been organizing MathMatters for 5th and 6th graders. New this year, we are adding 4th graders to Mathmatters.

We will have separate tests for 4th, 5th and 6th graders so that students are competing with the same grade level of contestants. We made an agreement with Math League to utilize their questions this year. Each group will receive 30 questions and will have 40 minutes to answer them. All participants will receive a participation certificate and the top ten students will receive awards. The following awards will be given to the top three students in each grade level.
