2015 NC Northeast Regional Mathematics Contest

Hosted by the Department of Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics of Chowan University invites you and your students to participate in our 29th Regional Mathematics Contest, which we will host on our campus on Friday, March 27, 2015. Competition will be offered in four divisions: Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Comprehensive. The use of calculators will NOT be allowed in any of the contests.

First, second, and third place awards will be given in each division for both individual and team categories. A minimum of three contestants is required to enter the team competition in a given division. Because of limited space and personnel, we ask that you limit your Level 1, 2, and 3 teams to ten (10) students each. We are not placing a limit on the number of Comprehensive contestants since these students could win college scholarships and/or positions on the NC ARML team by performing well at the state contest.

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 27. See the section below for information regarding how to register for our contest.

Contest Registration

Names of contestants in each division must be submitted IN ADVANCE. The deadline for submitting registrations is 5:00pm, Monday, March 16. 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. Students are eligible to compete in a division based on which mathematics classes they have been enrolled in during the current academic year.

Level 1 - Students enrolled in Math 1 during the current academic year.
Level 2 - Students enrolled in Math 2 during the current academic year.
Level 3 - Students enrolled in Math 3 during the current academic year.

Students who qualify for competition in more than one division may choose which division to compete in. However, no student may compete in more than one division, nor at more than one test site, each year. For complete NCCTM State Mathematics Contest Rules of Eligibility, click here.
