### Math Contest at MathNotations

I was asked to pass on the word on this free TEAM-BASED math contest... geared towards middle/high school students. Teachers, take note!

Dave Marain from MathNotations has authored a Math Contest, which will take place on Tuesday February 3rd.

Students in Grades 7-12 may participate. Schools can register one team of up to 6 students to try the contest which will be different from most math competitions:

It's unclear to me if homeschoolers may participate, if they form a team.

- Calculator permitted

## Comments

I hadn't considered a "homeschool team" but I'm flexible! if a group of 2-6 youngsters want to form a team, give yourselves a "name" and go for it! As long as there is an adult to sponsor/proctor it, that's fine.
