SACMATH (Sacramento Area Competitions in Mathematics) is an organization led by Jeff Soesbe that has been running mathematics contests in the Sacramento area since October 2009. During the 2014-2015 school year, I am planning another series of fun and challenging contests. You can join the SACMATH mailing list to receive announcements of upcoming SACMATH contests and other math contest related information.
The next set of contests in the 2014-2015 school year will be on Sunday, February 8, 2015. That day, there will be a High School Contest in the morning and an Elementary School Contest in the afternoon. See the contest information pages (links below) for details on contest formats and tests.
(There is no Middle School Contest that weekend, as I am running the MathCounts Chapter Contest on Sat, Feb 7. Remember that 6th graders can attend the SACMATH Elementary School Contest, and that middle school students are welcome at the SACMATH High School Contest and are placed in their own category for individual awards).
Results from previous contests can be found on the "Contest Results" page.
Feel free to contact Jeff Soesbe of SACMATH at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. I hope you enjoy the contests!

2014-2015 School Year
The below dates are the preliminary plan for SACMATH contests throughout the remainder of the 2014-2015 school year. All dates are subject to change due to work and family requirements.
Apr 2015: SACMATH "Alamo Format" Contests (ES, MS/HS)
I am considering having contests using my "Alamo Format" some time in April 2015. This will depend on my schedule and time commitments.
For reference, "Alamo Format" is (Elementary School) Number Sense, Mathematics, Maps/Graphs/Charts, (maybe) Science, (maybe) team events; (Middle/High School) Number Sense, Subject Area Math (Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra-2, Trig, Calculus), Science (MS and HS)
Apr 25 or 26, 2015: ARML Local at UC Davis
As part of preparing regional teams for ARML (see below), Davis Math Circle will be hosting the ARML Local competition one day the weekend of Apr 25 and 26 (likely Saturday April 25 during Math Circle/League).
May 29-30, 2015: ARML (American Regional Math League) at UNLV
ARML is a nationwide math contest for students at the high school math level. UC Davis Math Circle and SACMATH are helping to organize one or more 15-student teams to represent the Sacramento Metropolitan Area in the contest. The team would practice as part of the Davis Math Circle activities.
