Math
League Contest Problem Books contain the actual math contests given to students
participating in Math League contests. The contests are designed to build
student interest and confidence in mathematics through solving worthwhile
problems. The Math League has Math Contest Books for Grades 4, 5, & 6; Grades
7 & 8; High School, and Algebra Course 1 students. Over 1 million students
from the United States and Canada participate in Math League Contests each
year. Every contest has questions from different areas of mathematics, suitable
for the grade level listed. Many students first develop an interest in mathematics
through problem-solving activities such as these contests. |

## Grades 4, 5, & 6 Contest Books There are 5
volumes for Volume 1 contains
the contests given in the school years 1979-80 through 1985-86. These books are divided into three sections for ease of use by students and teachers. You'll find the contests in the first section. Each contest consists of 30 or 40 multiple-choice questions that you can do in 30 minutes. On each 3-page contest, the questions on the 1st page are generally straight-forward, those on the 2nd page are moderate in difficulty, and those on the 3rd page are more difficult. In the second section of the book, you'll find detailed solutions to all the contest questions. In the third and final section of the book are the letter answers to each contest. In this section, you'll also find rating scales you can use to rate your performance. Many people prefer to consult the answer section rather than the solution section when first reviewing a contest. We believe that reworking a problem when you know the answer (but not the solution) often leads to increased understanding of problem-solving techniques. Each year we sponsor an Annual 4th Grade Mathematics Contest, an Annual 5th Grade Mathematics Contest, and an Annual 6th Grade Mathematics Contest. A student may participate in the contest on grade level or for any higher grade level. For example, students in grades 4 and 5 (or below) may participate in the 6th Grade Contest. Starting with the 1991-92 school year, students have been permitted to use calculators on any of our contests. |

## Grades 7 & 8 Contest Books There are 5
volumes for Volume 1 contains
the contests given in the school years 1977-78 through 1981-82. These books are divided into three sections for ease of use by students and teachers. You'll find the contests in the first section. Each contest consists of 30 or 40 multiple-choice questions that you can do in 30 minutes. On each 3-page contest, the questions on the 1st page are generally straight-forward, those on the 2nd page are moderate in difficulty, and those on the 3rd page are more difficult. In the second section of the book, you'll find detailed solutions to all the contest questions. In the third and final section of the book are the letter answers to each contest. In this section, you'll also find rating scales you can use to rate your performance. Many people prefer to consult the answer section rather than the solution section when first reviewing a contest. We believe that reworking a problem when you know the answer (but not the solution) often leads to increased understanding of problem-solving techniques. Each school year, we sponsor an Annual 7th Grade Mathematics Contest, an Annual 8th Grade Mathematics Contest, and an Annual Algebra Course 1 Mathematics Contest. A student may participate in the contest at the student's grade level, or any higher grade level. For example, students in grade 7 (or below) may participate in the 8th Grade Contest. Any student may participate in the Algebra Course 1 Contest. Starting with the 1991-92 school year, students have been permitted to use calculators on any of our contests. |

## High School Contest Books There are
5 volumes for Volume 1 contains
the contests given in the school years 1977-78 through 1981-82. These books gives classes, clubs, teams, and individuals diversified collections of high school math problems. All of these contests were used in regional interscholastic competition throughout the United States and Canada. Each contest was taken by about 80,000 students. In the contest section, each page contains a complete contest that can be worked during a 30-minute period. The convenient format makes this book easy to use in a class, a math club, or for just plain fun. In addition, detailed solutions for each contest also appear on a single page. Every contest
has questions from different areas of mathematics. The goal is to encourage
interest in mathematics through solving Each book is divided into four sections for ease of use by both students and teachers. The first section of each book contains the contests. Each contest contains six questions that can be worked in a 30-minute period. The second section of each book contains detailed solutions to all the contests. Often, several solutions are given for a problem. Where appropriate, notes about interesting aspects of a problem are mentioned on the solutions page. The third section of each book lists answers to each contest question. The last section of each book contains the difficulty rating percentages for each question. These percentages (based on actual student performance on these contests) determine the relative difficulty of each question. You may prefer to consult the answer section rather than the solution section when first reviewing a contest. The authors believe that reworking a problem when the answer (but not the solution) is known often helps to better understand problem-solving techniques. |
