SACMATH (Sacramento Area Competitions in Mathematics) is an organization led by Jeff Soesbe which has been running mathematics contests in the Sacramento area since October 2009. During the 2013-2014 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.
I will not be running any more MathLeague.Org qualifier contests in the 2013-2014 school year, due to time commitments If you could be interested in running a MathLeague.Org contest, I can guide you through the planning and execution process. Contact me if you are interested.
Results from previous contests can be found on the "Contest Results" page.
Feel free to contact Jeff Soesbe of SACMATH at email@example.com with any questions. I hope you enjoy the contests!
2013/2014 School Year
The below dates are the preliminary plan for SACMATH contests throughout the 2013-2014 school year. All dates are subject to change due to work and family requirements.
UC Davis Math Circle is doing a great Saturday program, where professors and graduate students present talks on interesting and fun math topics. Afterwards, there is contest practice with problems from contests like AMC, MathCounts, MathLeague.org and ARML. For more details on UC Davis Math Circle, visit their website: davismathcircle.wordpress.com
I might be running one more set of contests in the school year, depending on time availability. These would not be MathLeague.Org contests but would instead be similar to contests from my youth in Texas. using a format I call "Alamo Format". More information on the possibility of these contests will be available as my plans develop.
CHANGE (12/28): MathLeague.Org will not be running District Championships this year. All students who score high enough on any MathLeague.Org test(s) will advance directly to the respective State Championships. (MS in March, HS in April, ES in May). For more details see the MathLeague.Org website.
ARML Local (April 27 or 28, at UC Davis). UC Davis will be the site for the ARML Local, which will help give students experience with the ARML format before the ARML competition in May.
MathLeague.Org Elementary School State Championships. These are planned for early May and there is a possibility they will be in the Sacramento area.
ARML = May 30-31 @UNLV. ARML is a nationwide math contest for students at the high school math level. UC Davis Math Circle and SACMATH would like 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.
