Saskatchewan Math Challenge is a provincial math competition co-sponsored by the Saskatchewan Math Teachers’ Society and the Universities of Saskatchewan and Regina. Students from grades 7 to 10 compete as individuals and as teams of 3 to 5 in solving problems. The two team rounds encourage collaboration among students as only one answer booklet is collected from each team. To see contests and answer keys from the last five years, go to smts.ca and click on "Math Challenge."
This year the event is hosted at the University of Saskatchewan Arts Building on Saturday, March 15 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. The registration fee is $40 per team and includes snacks, lunch, competition materials, math activities and the possibility of receiving door prizes and awards. Click here to register a team or several teams. Registration is open until March 7; we will be confirming lunch numbers with Marquis Hall on this date so we are unable to register teams after this date.
