The purpose of the contest is to provide recognition and encouragement to mathematically-talented high school students. Each year it attracts hundreds of students from more than 20 high schools throughout the county (and beyond) to participate in a two-part mathematics competition held on the UC San Diego campus in late April.
Students compete for both team and individual awards that are presented at a banquet dinner held at the Faculty Club ten days after the competition. The contest continues a tradition that promotes good relations between UC San Diego and local high schools, teachers, and students.
The contest is administered in two 90-minute parts. Part I consists of 25 multiple choice problems. Part II consists of 4 long-answer problems.
The 2017 Honors Math Contest will be held on Saturday, April 22. Part I begins promptly at 8:30am, in Peterson Hall on the UC San Diego campus. Registration opens at 7:45am, and close at 8:20am. You must first register your team online.
All contest participants and coaches are invited to the Awards Banquet, which will be held on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 starting at 6:00p, at the UC San Diego Faculty Club. Please let the organizers know how many people from your team are planning to attend the banquet, by contacting Prof. Todd Kemp at email@example.com, by Friday, April 28 at 4pm.
