The Saskatchewan Math Challenge is a provincial math competition co-sponsored by the Saskatchewan Math Teachers’ Society and the Universities of Saskatchewan and Regina. Students from grades 7 to 10 compete as individuals and as teams of 3 to 5 in solving problems. The two team rounds encourage collaboration among students as only one answer booklet is collected from each team. To see contests and answer keys from past years, go to smts.ca and click on "Math Challenge."
This year the event is hosted at the University of Regina on Saturday, March 2 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. The registration fee is $40 per team and includes snacks, lunch, competition materials, math activities and the possibility of receiving door prizes and awards.
