# Marshall University Mathematics Competition

## About the Competition

The mathematics department hosts an annual mathematics competition for
high school students.
Rather than testing students'
ability to recall facts, the competition is designed to test students'
mathematical creativity and their ability to formulate and defend their
conclusions.

Each school may send one team of three students. Students
may use graphing calculators during the examination. Successful
participants generally have completed mathematics courses through at
least Algebra 2 or pre-calculus.
