Northern S.D. Math Contest

2022 dates will be announced
The contest
Northern's mathematics faculty members will write tests that cover specific areas of mathematics. Divisions are elementary algebra, geometry, advanced algebra, and senior division. Each test usually consists of 35-50 multiple choice questions and a tiebreaker. The test usually takes about 50 minutes.
 
The contest itself is not open to the public; however, all are welcome to attend the awards ceremony at 1 p.m. in the upstairs gym of the Barnett Center.

History
Northern math professors Scout Mewaldt and Edwin Williamson created the mathematics contest in 1953. Starting with approximately 40 students from eight area schools in attendance, today, more than 1,000 students from dozens of schools participate. The contest was developed to give area high school teachers an opportunity to compare the mathematical skills of their students with the skills of students from other schools and promote interest in math.
