The Tenth Rockdale Math Competition

This was yet another capacity-filled tournament!

We had a total of 80 six-person teams registered this year, which meant that some schools were turned away due to space, just like last year.

As with the previous few years, we offered an ARML-style competition, with a Power, Team, Relay, and Individual rounds. Each school was invited to bring a six-student teams in each of middle school, junior varsity, or varsity.

As with last year, we continued the weighting of the Individual Round problems based on how many participants incorrectly answered each question (see the October 2013 page for more details). This table shows the percentage of participants who got each problem incorrect, and thus, these were the weights assigned to each problem.

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.
