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 school year is coming to a close, but there are still contests coming! See below for information about the (new) Rocklin Academy Math Tournament and ARML (American Regional Math League).
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!
There are a few more contests coming up before the 2014-2015 school year ends!
Sun, May 3: Rocklin Academy Math Tournament
There's a new contest in the area! Rocklin Academy is hosting the first of what will hopefully be an Annual Math Tournament. The tournament will be from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm on Sunday May 3 at Rocklin Academy in Rocklin, CA.
Five-student teams from the same school will compete in both individual and team tests. Schools may have multiple teams.
Sat May 16: SACMATH "Alamo Format" Contest (ES and MS) - CANCELLED
Unfortunately, due to work issues I will NOT be able to run math contests on Saturday, May 16. My apologies to all who were looking forward to some contests (myself included).
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.
ARML teams in Northern California are organized by MathLeague.Org. For more details on Northern California ARML teams, registration process, and schedule, see the MathLeague.Org ARML site for NorCal (http://mathleague.org/armlsfba.php).
Students practice as part of the Davis Math Circle problem solving activities on Saturdays. For more details contact Davis Math Circle (http://davismathcircle.wordpress.com).
2015-2016 School Year
Preliminary dates for contests in the 2015-2016 School Year will be announced around September of 2015. Look for three rounds of SACMATH contest weekends and hopefully much more!
