What is the purpose of math league?
The purpose of the MN Junior High Math League is to encourage students to participate in math contests, enable students to meet mathletes from other schools, and to provide recognition for students excelling in mathematics. It also serves as preparation for the annual MathCounts competition. The meet topics are based on the MathCounts topics.
How does math league work?
We will meet at least twice as a group before every competition. 7th & 8th grade will meet designated Wednesday mornings in the Makerspace starting at 7:30 (or as soon as students arrive). During practices we go over the topics that will be covered in the upcoming meet and complete mock exams to prepare for what the contest will be like. There are 5 meets throughout the year and normally fall on Monday’s after school. We will host one meet at PWMS and travel to Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial, and New Ulm.
