ICTM State Contest



basics

    The ICTM State Math Contest is sponsored each year on a Saturday in April by the Indiana Council of Teachers of Mathematics. The test is generally a forty-question test covering material appropriate to the contestant's current course in mathematics. Students compete only against students in their own courses at school. The test is given in a multiple-choice format; any student who scores 75% or better on the test is named 'Scholar' by the Council. Those who score in the top 5% statewide are named 'Outstanding Scholar'.

xmt points XMT points are awarded for participation as follows:

    • Pre-Algebra Division: 10 points
    • Algebra Division: 12 points
    • Geometry Division: 14 points
    • Algebra II Division: 16 points
    • Comprehensive Division: 18 points

    XMT points are awarded for performance at a rate of one point per correct answer. Tests are generally written to include forty questions. There is a twenty-point bonus for being named 'Scholar' and another twenty for 'Outstanding Scholar'. As this is a Saturday contest, Mr. Rice reserves the right to award compensatory points to an interested student who is unable to attend because of a legitimate commitment.
