Saturday, April 17, 2021, 9:30-11am

The Indiana Council of Teachers of Mathematics (ICTM) is pleased to inform you that the 2021 ICTM Indiana State Mathematics Contest will be held at 9:30 AM (local time) on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at the host sites listed below (scroll to the bottom). For more host site information, please contact a local site coordinator. We hope you will encourage your students to participate in the 2021 contest.  Local host sites will recognize local top performers (1st, 2nd, 3rd places and top 25%).  After all scores in the state are processed, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd place and top 5% state performers in each exam category will be recognized at the ICTM Outstanding Scholars Award Ceremony at the Indiana Statehouse on Friday, June 4, 1PM (tentatively scheduled).

The cost for registration is $7 (checks made payable to ICTM).  See below for test category information, a link to past exams, participant information, registration information with link, calculator policy and host site information.

Registration will be open from Monday, March 1, 2021 through Thursday, March 31, 2021. Online registration closes approximately two weeks before the contest day. Please contact your site coordinator for late registrations.


Categories, Format and Content

 

There are five mathematics problem-solving tests. Each contains 28 to 40 multiple-choice questions; 90 minutes are allowed for students to work with the test.

The test categories are:
*         Pre-Algebra
*         Algebra First Course/Integrated Math I
*         Geometry/Integrated Math II
*         Algebra Second Course/Integrated Math III
*         Comprehensive

Questions for the first four categories may be related to the content identified in Indiana's academic standards or included in state-approved textbooks. The content of the Comprehensive category is drawn from pre-calculus mathematics including trigonometry, finite mathematics, simple linear algebra, probability, statistics, and analytic geometry.  A non-programmable calculator is permitted.  Please see below for a partial list of acceptable calculators.

Participants


ICTM is dedicated to supporting Indiana public and private school teachers.  ONLY public or private school teachers or principals may register students. There is no limit to the number of participants from any public or private school.  Parents and/or students MAY NOT register students.

A student should be registered for the test category that matches the course in which they are CURRENTLY enrolled.  Students may not participate or register for a test category out of sequence (Order:  Pre-algebra, Algebra I/Integrated I, Geometry/Integrated II, Algebra II/Integrated III, Comprehensive).  For example, a competitor who previously competed in the Geometry/Integrated II category may not 'test back' in the Algebra I/Integrated I category; likewise, a competitor who previously competed in the Algebra II/Integrated III category may not 'test back' in the Algebra I/Integrated I or the Geometry/Integrated II category.  A participant may take only one test each year.

* Participants in the Pre-Algebra category are limited to Upper Elementary, Middle/Junior High School students who have not yet enrolled in an Algebra I/Integrated I high school mathematics course;

* Students who are enrolled in either an Algebra I or Integrated I course will register for the Algebra I/Integrated Math I test;

* Students who are enrolled in either a Geometry or Integrated Mathematics II course will register for the Geometry/Integrated Math II test; and,

* Students who are enrolled either an Algebra II or Integrated Mathematics III course will register for the Algebra II/Integrated Math III test.

Students may participate in the Pre-Algebra category more than once.  Upper Elementary and Middle/Junior High School students not already enrolled in an Algebra I/Integrated I high school equivalent course should register for this exam.  Once a student is enrolled in an Algebra I/Integrated I course, the student is no longer eligible to compete in the Pre-Algebra category.

Students may participate only one time in each of the Algebra I/Integrated Math I, Geometry/Integrated Math II, or Algebra II/Integrated Math III categories.  Students must follow the sequence in the order listed above.  A student enrolled in Geometry/Integrated II (for example) may not 'test back' in a category out of sequence with the course in which they are enrolled such as Algebra I/Integrated I; likewise, a student enrolled in Algebra II/Integrated III (for example) may not 'test back' in a category out of sequence such as Algebra I/Integrated I or Geometry/Integrated II.

Students may participate in the Comprehensive category more than once. Once a student participates in the Comprehensive category, the student may only compete in the Comprehensive category again until the student graduates from high school.


Registration, Certification and Fees


Registration Information:

There is a non-refundable $7.00 participant fee for each student (checks to be made payable to ICTM). Participants must be registered by their current math teacher or school principal (even if the school is not participating in the contest), and the school must certify that the participants are currently enrolled in courses appropriate for the category.

Your registration is not complete until all fees have been received by the appropriate local site. Registration will be open from Monday, March 21, 2021 through Thursday, March 31, 2021.

Reminder:  Teachers/principals must register students. Parents/students may not register students.
