Competition Categories

To align with the Common Core Math standards, the competition categories 
have been changed as following:

Algebra and Functions → Algebraic Thinking
Math Reasoning → Geometry
Number Sense → Number and Operations
Measurement and Geometry → Measurement
Statistics, Data Analysis, and Probability → Data Analysis

Algebraic Thinking

Algebraic Thinking:

(similar to last year's "Algebra and Functions" category, but with a focus on algebraic thinking/reasoning)

Team test in which each team will answer 8-10 Algebra questions, with most problems being word problems or logic puzzles, in which students must show as much work as possible (diagrams, charts, etc.), as partial credit will be given for some problems

CCS Mathematical Practices:
Use appropriate tools strategically
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
