    Individual team scores and a breakdown of the results can be seen here.

    Coaches: Please encourage your teams that scores below 10 are not uncommon. The problems offered in these meets are of the same calibre as those offered in the top national mathematics exams, and can be quite challenging. We are very pleased to see teams performing as well as they have, and we know they will rise to the challenge and perform even better in the meets to come.

    Congratulations to all the teams that participated. We look forward to challenging these excellent students again! We have tentatively scheduled our next mathematics meet for next fall and invite you to compete, to spread the word about the competition to your friends and colleagues, and to send to us your comments about our competition.
