Continental Math League (CML) writes contests designed to both maximize student opportunities to participate and to improve their problem-solving capabilities.  They have received reports from teachers and parents that students who participate in math contests improve in both their math and reading skills.
Students will be participating with other students on the same grade level from schools all over the United States.

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.
