Please mark your calendar TENTATIVELY for Saturday, April 20th, 2024 for the 2024 ICTM State Math Contest next year! The website will be updated in the coming months.
There are five mathematics problemsolving tests. Each contains 28 to 40 multiplechoice questions; 90 minutes are allowed for students to work with the test.
The test categories are:
* PreAlgebra
* 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 stateapproved textbooks. The content of the Comprehensive category is drawn from precalculus mathematics including trigonometry, finite mathematics, simple linear algebra, probability, statistics, and analytic geometry. A nonprogrammable calculator is permitted. Please see below for a partial list of acceptable calculators.
