MathRocks! is a six-contest series for students in grades 1 though 12.  Each contest has 4 individual rounds that vary in length and problem types, with some problems being familiar, some that are familiar concepts but presented in a new way, and some that will expose them to new math ideas altogether.  Participants are then placed with 2-3 other students to participate in a team round where they can work together on challenging problems to help grow their ability to work within a team.  Contests are not about testing mastery but about improving understanding of foundational math while developing logic and problem-solving skills.

Contests are from 9:30am until 1pm on the following dates: September 24, October 22, November 19, February 4, March 4, and April 1.  Students may register for all six contests or individual contests.  The University of Nevada Reno’s College of Engineering hosts local students and there is an option for students to participate online if they live more than a one-hour drive away, are sick or in quarantine, or similar reasons.  Registration for guaranteed spots is open until 9am on Wednesday, September 21st.  At that time, registrations will only be accepted as spots are available.  Registrations is $20.

MathRocks! is sponsored by the Economic Development Association of Western Nevada (EDAWN).
