Kansas Collegiate Math Competition Web Page

Goals: The Kansas Collegiate Math Competition is organized by a group of faculty from Kansas Universities and Colleges in order to promote mathematics among college students.

Rules:

Any college or university in Kansas can send up to three teams. Teams will consist of a minimum of two and a maximum of three undergraduate students. A one-person team will only be allowed in the competition if this person is his/her school's only representative in the competition.

The exam consists of 5 problems. The problems will normally be accessible to sophomore students and even well-prepared freshmen. Each problem is worth 10 points and will be scored by a committee selected from participating schools. For full credit on a problem the answer must be correct and all supporting work must be shown.

Calculators are allowed. No books or notes may be used during the exam.

The top two contestant scores from each team will be used to determine the team's score and ranking. The winners will be announced at the Kansas Section Meeting. The top three individual winners will receive a cash award. The top three teams will receive plaques.
