The Department of Mathematics of Chowan University invites you and your students to participate in our 27th Regional Mathematics Contest, which we will host on our campus on Friday, March 22, 2013. Competition will be offered in the four areas of Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Comprehensive Mathematics. Please remember, calculators will NOT be allowed in any of the contests.
First, second, and third place awards will be given in each subject area for both individual and team categories. A minimum of three contestants is required to enter the team competition in a subject area. Because of limited space and personnel, we ask you to limit your Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II teams to ten (10) students each. (We are not placing a limit on the Comprehensive test since these are the students who could win college scholarships and/or positions on the NC ARML team via the state contest results.)
Registration for the contest must be done online (see below). A registration fee of $5.00 per student will be charged to cover costs of test preparation, grading, postage, and awards. Checks should be made to Chowan University and may be sent in advance (ATTN: Thomas H. Whitaker) or presented when you check in on March 22. See the section below for information regarding how to register for our contest.
Names of contestants in each subject area must be submitted IN ADVANCE. The deadline for submitting registrations is 5:00pm, Friday, March 8. Due to the time required to make arrangements for testing facilities, no late submissions will be accepted.
In order to streamline the registration process, we are ONLY ACCEPTING ELECTRONIC APPLICATIONS. Before submitting your registration form, please be as sure as possible about the names of your contestants in each category.
Download and complete the 2013 Registration Form, then e-mail the file as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. The file is in Microsoft Excel (XLS) format, and should be readable by any compatible spreadsheet application. (It is known that the file will not easily convert to the Google document format.)
