Purple Comet! Math Meet

Welcome to the Purple Comet! Math Meet!

The Purple Comet! Math Meet is a free, on-line, international, team mathematics competition designed for middle and high school students conducted annually since 2003.

Purple Comet! Math Meet response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

Despite widespread school closures and social distancing, the 2020 Purple Comet! Math Meet will take place as scheduled April 21 – 30. This online mathematics contest is particularly well suited for teams of students who cannot get together to compete. While many activities for students are being cancelled, this activity can continue. All students need to participate is an Internet connection. Although students are not allowed to use the Internet to search for solutions to contest problems, they may use the Internet to communicate with their fellow teammates. Members of a team do not need to be in the same location to compete together. Team supervisors are still responsible to ensure that their students understand and follow the rules of the competition, but that does not require the supervisor to be in the same location as every student on the team.

The next contest will be held from April 21 - April 30, 2020

Team registration has begun and will continue through the end of the contest.

The Purple Comet! Math Meet needs your small voluntary contribution to survive.
