A New Kind of Math Contest

While mathematics contests have traditionally focused on individual performance and personal ingenuity, Math Attack Society believes that they should represent something more.

Our team aims to broaden the previously isolated environment of competitive math by focusing on collaboration. Thus, we have introduced a new junior high competition that is centred on team performance, one where every individual is encouraged to recognize their own mathematical strengths and work well with others in order to succeed.

If you think you have what it takes to be shine amongst the best young math talents, gather two of your friends and sign up! You will go head-to-head and become friends with hundreds of other students. When competing in our unique and enjoyable event, we hope that you experience growth as a mathematician, team player, and leader.

What to Expect

The Team Math Attack provides a new, unique format of competition for young math enthusiasts across the province. We strive to increase the engagement of junior high mathematicians by providing an intense yet fun team-based experience for all competitors!

Due to the online format, this year will have a different set of rules than indicated below! Please see this year’s rules for more information!

Live Setting Intensity Collaboration Preparation
The contest is held live at your local university, creating a more competitive and fun atmosphere. In the team contest, you’ll have 30 minutes to solve 15 questions: 5 easy, 5 medium, and 5 hard.Compete in teams of three and collaborate with your team members!Practice mathematical thinking and problem-solving for scholarships and awards!
