The Eighth Rockdale Math Competition

Due to overcrowding last year, the eighth competition only allowed one team per level to participate.

The tournament took place on October 27. We had a record number of schools participating: 36. It seemed to go well, and we focused on minimizing scoring errors and making sure all aspects of the tournament ran smoothly. The only major hiccup was when the doughnuts for the refreshment break arrived a little later than expected!

Again we offered an ARML-style competition, with a Power, Team, Relay, and Individual rounds. Each school was invited to bring one or two six-student teams in each of middle school or junior varsity, with an additional varsity team.

The competition papers will be included in a future edition of the “Problem Book”.

Trophies were awarded to the top 3 teams in each of middle school, junior varsity, and varsity per classification, and the top 12 middle school individuals, the top 12 JV individuals, and the top 12 varsity individuals were each recognized with a trophy. Additionally, the overall first place team winners won a Rockdale Math Competition T-shirt.

Listed here are all team rankings per level and the top individual winners in each category.
