What Are The Tournaments All About?
Students who have become proficient at the games may wish to test their problem-solving abilities with students from other schools at a National Mathematics Pentathlon® Academic Tournament. Teachers and parents can help these students gain leadership skills by preparing them for this level of involvement. If students intend to participate, they need to be very knowledgeable of the procedures and rules that apply to these tournaments.
We welcome ALL students who know all 5 games and are knowledgeable about tournament procedures to attend a National Mathematics Pentathlon® Academic Tournament in the following Center:
Indiana – Ohio Center
Michigan – Ohio Center
Texas – Austin Metro Center

Tournaments are conducted on Saturdays in the Spring. In each Region there is one tournament for each Division Level:
Division I (Kindergarten – 1st Grade)
Division II (2nd – 3rd Grade)
Division III (4th – 5th Grade)
Division IV (6th – 7th Grade)
