The Thirteenth Rockdale Math Competition

The 13th RMC was held on October 28, 2017.

We had a total of 132 four-person teams which registered this year before the deadline. This was somehow still above the advertised limit of 125 four-person teams!

Once again, we offered an ARML-style competition, with a Power, Team, Relay, and Individual rounds. Each school was invited to bring a four-student teams in each of middle school, junior varsity, or varsity.

As with previous years, 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 file shows the percentage of participants who got each problem incorrect, and thus, these were the weights assigned to each problem.

We also changed the scoring of the Relay Round slightly to award more points for each problem correct.

The competition papers will be included in the second “Problem Book” for the years 2015 to 2024.

Team trophies were awarded to the top 3 teams in each of middle school, junior varsity, and varsity per classification. We continued the recognition for high-scoring individuals, which was introduced last year: we awarded the highest-scoring students in each of middle school, junior varsity, and varsity a Championship Medal. We also awarded the highest scoring student from each school a School Winner Medal. 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.
