Sacramento Area Competitions in Mathematics


Welcome to SACMATH

SACMATH (Sacramento Area Competitions in Mathematics) is an organization led by Jeff Soesbe that has been running mathematics contests in the Sacramento region since October 2009.

During the 2018-2019 school year, I am planning another series of fun and challenging contests. I will also publicize other contests and math-related activities in the region. You can join the SACMATH mailing list to receive announcements of upcoming contests and activities.

My plan is to have one contest day per month from October through March. On this contest day there would be MathLeague.Org Elementary School and Middle School Contests. I will also try to do some High School contests during the year, as time and site availability permits.

UC Davis will again be a regional site for the AMC contests (AMC-8, AMC-10/12 A and B). All tests would be in the evening at UC Davis. AMC-8 is scheduled for Tuesday November 13. More details are below

Results from previous contests can be found on the "Contest Results" page.

Feel free to contact Jeff Soesbe of SACMATH at [email protected] with any questions. I hope you enjoy the contests!
