Continental Mathematics League (CML) is an organization that hosts math competitions for all grade levels at locations all around the country. This year MEK has joined the League and will be one of the hosts for their 4th-9th grade math competition. We want to offer students an opportunity to learn, compete, and have fun with math!
This contest is open and free to all 4th-9th graders who wish to compete. Students have two options. They may sign up to compete in their grade level, or they can choose to compete in a higher grade level. Students can also choose to either sign up for the Euclidean or Pythagorean Division. There is only one difference between the two divisions: the Pythagorean Division is more challenging and requires above grade level reading comprehension and analytical skills. Students may only compete in one division.
The competition is a 30 minute individual mathematical test. Upon completion, a student’s test is graded by MEK Review using the answer key provided by CML. First place from each grade and division will receive a medal, and 2nd through 3rd place will receive award certificates. The 6 top scores are then submitted to CML’s official website as MEK’s team score, so students can compete against other nationwide students for team and individual awards.
MEK’s team ranking will be published on CML’s official website after the contest. National and Regional awards will also be distributed by CML to individuals or teams according to score rankings.
CML has five meets for the 2018-2019 competition year: 11/1, 11/29, 1/3, 1/31, 3/7. These meets will take place at our Palisades Park Campus. Students may sign up for one, two, or all five contests! It is up to them! However, as students will most likely improve with each competition, MEK strongly recommends that interested students sign up for all five meets.
Registration will only be open during certain times. Right now, registration for the 11/1 and 11/29 meet is open. Again, students can sign up for one or both contest dates.
To register, please complete the entry form at the bottom of this page.
