These contests are provided by the American Scholastic Math Association (ASMA). Their contest series provides your student with an opportunity to compete nationally with other high ability students across the country.
Their panel of creative mathematicians who design each contest are educators in junior, intermediate, high schools and colleges, and are themselves faculty advisers for math research clubs or math teams.
In these days of declining Scholastic Aptitude Test scores, it becomes increasingly important for mathematics students to receive extra-curricular enrichment to help sharpen their mathematics skills. ASMA’s philosophy is that this competition is more of an educational and achievement experience than a very difficult contest and the mathematical questions will generally reflect that position.

Individual Meet Awards: NNVMath will present ribbons to the top performers of each meet at the awards ceremony at the following MathRocks! contest. This gap in time allows us to deal with any scoring issues and ensure results are correct without making participants and parents wait for an unknown amount of time on each contest day.
