Math Contests

The North Carolina State Mathematics Contest was initiated in 1979 and consists of a network of mathematics contests offered in three divisions (Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Comprehensive), culminating in state-level final competition. 

Regional Contests

Various universities and community colleges offer local qualifying contests, advancing top students to state-level competition.

State Contest

State finals are held concurrently at three sites in the Level 1, 2 and 3 divisions; finals for the comprehensive division are held at the NC School of Science & Math.

Other Opportunities for Students

We also organize, select, and train NC's ARML teams. ARML is "American Regions Math League," and is the only national, on-site mathematics competition in the U.S.
