Math Day Competition

October 28, 2011

Math skills allow us to 'turn anything in life into a math problem,' to use logical approaches to see likely outcomes or solutions. The Annual Math Day Competition supports youth who have an interest in and aptitude for math. The competition hones math skills and awards mathematics scholarships to those with top scores.

On Math Day Competition, students will participate in a written exam known as PROBE: Problems Requiring Original and Brilliant Efforts.Thursday, Nov. 3
9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Lory Student Center

The Department of Mathematics at Colorado State University is hosting the 35th Annual Math Day Competition.

Each year since 1977, the department has hosted Math Day, which attracts 300 to 400 of the best high school math students from Colorado and neighboring states for a day of mathematics competition.

A highlight of the day is a college-bowl-style competition which features a full, double-elimination tournament with 3-member teams from 64 schools. This annual event has given the department the opportunity to maintain close ties with Colorado secondary schools, and develop new associations with those schools in neighboring states.


The registration desk will be open on the 2nd floor of the Lory Student Center from 7:30-9 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 3. The event is scheduled to end at 3:50 p.m.

Problems evoke 'original, brilliant efforts'

Students will participate in a written exam known as the PROBE: Problems Requiring Original and Brilliant Efforts. Students compete for scholarships and prizes. 

Mathematics scholarships to CSU

Several of the top winners receive mathematics scholarships to Colorado State University. For those who choose to attend Colorado State, they must major in mathematics and maintain a cumulative 3.25 grade point average to continue receiving the annual scholarship.
