Time for the Spring update on The College of the Ozarks Math Leagues.
The dates for this spring's competition are Thursday
April 24, 2014 for the Junior High Math League,
and Tuesday April 8, 2014 for the Senior High
Math League. From this location you will
be able to submit all of the forms necessary to
participate in either competition. We hope to
see you and your students again this year!
1) We will be continuing several of the
features started over the past several years, but changing our first meeting location.
Prominent among them are A) the new flavor
of integration of all areas of math
into our various "topics"; B) the allowing
of calculators (graphing or otherwise) in all
divisions of both contests; C)the assembling for our first meeting is changed to be held this year in the Chapel; D) the totally voluntary
entry fees; and E) the same number of awards
given, based upon school size. If you have any
questions on any of these items that aren't answered
in these pages, feel free to contact me.
2) One of the ways teachers could help us is to send us 2 or 3 (OR MORE)
test questions for ANY of the tests listed. If you have
time, please feel free to help us and you by sending
us questions you think are important and/or good. We
can't guarantee we will use all (or even any) of your
questions, but we might and it is always good to see
what YOU teachers think is important. You can either
send me an email of possible questions at the email
address below, write them in the appropriate place on
the Response Form, or mail them to me at the address
3) As always we are in a constant flux of recovering/updating our mailing
lists. If you choose to respond by using the Response
Form found within these web pages you can expect an
email verifying our receipt of your registration but
no subsequent mailing of materials unless you specifically
4) If your corresponding colleague in the Junior/Senior High doesn't
attend Math League, or if you know someone who would
be interested, feel free to tell them about this web
site and encourage them to submit a Response form.
5) Please complete the Response
Form found within these web pages and submit it
to me at your earliest possible convenience. When
you do, you will be asked to also create a personal
password. This password will be used when you
submit your Participant List, so be sure and remember
it. It is important to note that only after you
submit a Response will you find the name of your
school on the corresponding Participant List form.
6) After you have submitted
the Response Form and are certain of the students
you are bringing and the groups within which they
will be participating, I encourage you to also
submit the Participant List. This will simplify
the day of the competition when you have been
required to enter in those student names and categories.
You are to enter the student names on the left
and select the categories in which they will participate
on the right.
I look forward to seeing and working with
all of you. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all.
