The Math Marathon is a problem solving event held for all students in grade 6 through 8 every year in the spring. The purpose of the event is to motivate students to work cooperatively and challenge them to solve a wide variety of mathematical problems. Students work with a partner to complete as many problems as they can in the allotted time period. Points are awarded according to the difficulty level, and prizes are awarded to the pair of students from each grade with the most points.
Problems are distributed weekly for the Mathcounts problem of the week competition throughout the year for Middle School students. The major goal of this problem solving activity is to strengthen critical thinking and problem solving skills related to real life applications. Individual solution strategies must be written up and turned in at the end of each week. Prizes are awarded to the top student in each grade at the end of the year.
