Homeschool Contests 

Each
year The Math League sponsors contests for grades 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, Algebra Course
1, and High School. By popular demand, Math League's Math Contests are now available for homeschoolers. These are the same contests used by schools, in a noncompetitive format for the home. Whether you give the contest with a time limit, or let homeschoolers work them at their own pace, you choose which is best for your homeschooler. Every contest has questions from different areas of mathematics. The goal is to encourage student interest and confidence in mathematics through solving worthwhile problems. Many students first develop an interest in mathematics through problemsolving activities such as these contests. You may also wish to consider Math League's Contest Problem Books and Educational Math Software for other great homeschool math resources, and our free Internet Help Facility for Grades 48 provides fast online math help, complete with explanations and examples. 
Benefits of Math League Contests include:

Comments from Teachers and Students Bob Smith:
I think your contests are an excellent source of questions and encourage
problem solving among all participants.
