LACC Hosts Annual Math Contests for High School Students

Share Button

LACC will hold a math contest on their campus on March 7, 2020, from 7:45 AM to 12 PM. Middle and high school students in Southern California are eligible to participate.

The problems to be solved in this competition require a solid algebra and geometry foundation. These problems challenge the student’s ability to think and synthesize rather than recall standard solution techniques from their courses. We believe this will give students with different backgrounds an equal footing. Knowledge of trigonometry and calculus is not required for almost all questions. There may occasionally be a problem requiring knowledge of trigonometry or calculus.

Calculators are NOT allowed to be used during the contest.

Students must register by noon on March 4, 2020. There will be $1,600 in cash prizes for the top 6 students, several $4,000 scholarships to attend LACC full-time, and several $1,000 scholarships to attend LACC part-time while still in high school.
