The 37th High School Math Contest will take place on
Saturday, February 3rd, 2024.
About the contest
Since 1986, the Department of Mathematics of the University of South Carolina has been inviting all interested South Carolina high schools to our exciting events. Our goal is to stimulate interest in mathematics among high school students and to recognize those who exhibit exceptional talent.
The main event is a 75-minute multiple-choice exam with 25 questions—the Individual Test.
For team awards, schools are separated into three divisions. The division assigned to a school is based on the results from the previous three contests. Any school without a presence in any of the last three contests is placed by default in the third division.
Schools participate as a team in our Team Event: a 60-minute open-answer exam. The score in this event is added to the average of the top 3 participants in the Written Exam.
- The top scorer of the Written Exam receives a medal, a plaque, and $400 cash prize.
- The participant obtaining the second place in the Written Exam received a medal, a plaque, and $200 cash prize.
- The participant in third placed obtains a medal, and $100 cash prize.
- Participants in places fourth to sixth receive a medal and $50 cash prize
For team awards, schools are separated into divisions. The top three schools from each division receive trophies.
Different statistics about the results of all of our different tournaments will be posted online. If you require any additional computation, please let us know.
