The 2023 competition will be held on Saturday, October 7, and consist of three rounds. Teams will consist of 1 to 4 students. Each round will be available during a specific time block during the day. Teams can compete in one of two divisions: virtually or in-person (see FAQ for details). Further details about contest logistics will be announced closer to the competition date. The problems on each round can be solved using only middle school mathematical techniques and every problem is computationally feasible without calculators. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, the use of any external source or aid, including calculators, dictionaries, notes, coaches, or proctors, is prohibited. Score will be calculated using each question’s point value, which is written next to the question number.
An individual competition, the Speed Round is a 10 question test to be completed in 20 minutes. All answers are non-negative integers at most 1,000,000.
An individual competition, the Accuracy Round is a 10 question test to be completed in 45 minutes. All answers are non-negative integers at most 1,000,000.
A team competition, the Team Round is a 15 question test to be completed in 40 minutes. All answers are non-negative integers at most 1,000,000.
Inspired by the Harvard MIT Mathematics Tournament's Guts Round, the Gunga Bowl is a fast-paced race between teams - with a live scoreboard and timer. The Gunga Bowl is composed of 9 rounds of 3 problems each, to be completed in 60 minutes. All answers are non-negative integers.
