Junior High Math League
Rules for the Junior High Math League
1. Each school may enter 4 "regular" teams
of two people each. These groups will be classified
7-I, 7-II, 8-I, 8-II. Alternates or a third person
for each “regular” team may be brought, but only two
students from a school will be allowed to work on
any given problem set. This rule means that at least
one student from every team takes both exams A and
B. A calculator will be allowed, in fact encouraged,
in all divisions. (graphing or otherwise)
2. Each school may also enter a team consisting
of one or two students in the OPEN division. These
students may be in either 7th or 8th grade (or one
of each), with the same rules for alternates as in
3. During the contest each of the 5 teams will
work two sets of problems, Set A and Set B. 20 minutes
will be allowed for each set, with a short break between
each set. After a short rest period each team will
solve a 15 minute Bonus question.
4. The Set A and Set B problems will be worth
20 points each. The bonus problem will be worth 5
points. The order of finish in each group will be
the team with the most total points. In the case of
a tie, the team with the largest number of points
on the Bonus Question will finish best. If both tied
teams scored the same amount on the Bonus question,
then the team that handed in their Bonus solution
first will be awarded the higher trophy.
5. A trophy will be awarded to each of the
5 groups with the highest total points. Certificates
for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th place schools in each group
will also be given. Grand prize trophies for first,
second, and third place will also be awarded with
fourth and fifth place grand prize certificates given.
Ties for the Grand Prize division will be decided
by first looking at the total number of Bonus points
for every group division. If a tie still exists the
team which handed in their Open Division Bonus Question
first will be given the higher award.
