Alumnus Advice

For the past two years, former Mathletes have chimed in from college to give advice to the current competitors. This year, Francisco Alvarez sent the following video from Harvard University, where he is a Freshman majoring in economics.

2016 Round 1 Welcome Email

Here is the welcome email I just sent to all who of our 2016 Round 1 competitors.

Hello everyone,

Thank you so much for choosing to compete in the 2016 Mathletes Challenge. This is our eleventh year of the competition and each year it continues to grow and get bigger. We will have 45 teams from 24 different elementary schools competing in Round 01.

What to Expect

Round 01 will be held on Wednesday, February 24th at the Donaghey Student Center (http://ualr.edu/studentcenter/) on the campus of UALR. The competition will be held in Room 214 which is on the 2nd floor of the Student Center. We will begin at 10:00am or whenever the last bus arrives. Transportation will be provided for all the schools and I will send out that list as soon as the folks in the transportation department get all of the routes worked out and sent to me. I have allocated enough room for all of the Mathletes and up to two adults per school to ride a bus.

How to Prepare

I highly suggest visiting our website (https://mathleteschallenge.com/) in order to prepare for the competition. You will find six years worth of released tests for you to use to help your students prepare for the Challenge. The rules are listed and you should be familiar with them. Students may use a calculator but you need to bring them with you. We will provide pencils and scratch paper for teams to use.

The Challenge

Four students compete as a team. The Challenge has two, 20 minute halves and each team has to complete a 20 question test per half. All five students on the team must compete, so at half time you will need to substitute one of your Mathletes. Scores will be tabulated and posted at the half and at the end of Round 1. The top 20 teams will move on to Round 2 which will be held Tuesday, March 1st.

All of us look forward to seeing everyone in two weeks. I will be sending the transportation list out as soon as I receive it. If you have any questions, please send me an email.

Thank you,

JC
