2023 ICTM Indiana State Mathematics Contest
The Indiana Council of Teachers of Mathematics (ICTM) is pleased to inform you that the 2023 ICTM Indiana State Mathematics Contest will be held at 9:30 AM (local time) on Saturday, April 22nd, 2023 at the host sites listed below (scroll to the bottom). For more host site information, please contact a local site coordinator. We hope you will encourage your students to participate. Local host sites will recognize local top performers (1st, 2nd, 3rd places and top 25%). After all scores in the state are processed, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd place and top 5% state performers in each exam category will be recognized at the ICTM Outstanding Scholars Award Ceremony at the Indiana Statehouse in June.
The cost for registration is $7. See below for test category information, a link to past exams, participant information, registration information with link, calculator policy and host site information.
For more information, please contact Leigh Britt

Registration opens March 1 and closes March 31, with no late registrations allowed.
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.

ICTM is dedicated to supporting Indiana public and private school teachers. Parents or guardians will be asked to register their students for the contest, with the understanding that ICTM will ask for each child's math teacher's name and email address to verify registration status.
A student should be registered for the test category that matches the course in which they are CURRENTLY enrolled. Students may not participate or register for a test category out of sequence (Order: Prealgebra, Algebra I/Integrated I, Geometry/Integrated II, Algebra II/Integrated III, Comprehensive). For example, a competitor who previously competed in the Geometry/Integrated II category may not 'test back' in the Algebra I/Integrated I category; likewise, a competitor who previously competed in the Algebra II/Integrated III category may not 'test back' in the Algebra I/Integrated I or the Geometry/Integrated II category. A participant may take only one test each year.
* Participants in the PreAlgebra category are limited to Upper Elementary, Middle/Junior High School students who have not yet enrolled in an Algebra I/Integrated I high school mathematics course;
* Students who are enrolled in either an Algebra I or Integrated I course will register for the Algebra I/Integrated Math I test;
* Students who are enrolled in either a Geometry or Integrated Mathematics II course will register for the Geometry/Integrated Math II test; and,
* Students who are enrolled either an Algebra II or Integrated Mathematics III course will register for the Algebra II/Integrated Math III test.
Students may participate in the PreAlgebra category more than once. Upper Elementary and Middle/Junior High School students not already enrolled in an Algebra I/Integrated I high school equivalent course should register for this exam. Once a student is enrolled in an Algebra I/Integrated I course, the student is no longer eligible to compete in the PreAlgebra category.
Students may participate only one time in each of the Algebra I/Integrated Math I, Geometry/Integrated Math II, or Algebra II/Integrated Math III categories. Students must follow the sequence in the order listed above. A student enrolled in Geometry/Integrated II (for example) may not 'test back' in a category out of sequence with the course in which they are enrolled such as Algebra I/Integrated I; likewise, a student enrolled in Algebra II/Integrated III (for example) may not 'test back' in a category out of sequence such as Algebra I/Integrated I or Geometry/Integrated II.
Students may participate in the Comprehensive category more than once. Once a student participates in the Comprehensive category, the student may only compete in the Comprehensive category again until the student graduates from high school.
Registration Information:
There is a nonrefundable $7.00 participant fee for each student. Participants will be registered by their parents or guardinas. ICTM reserves the right to verify each participant's school and math class enrollment to ensure that each participant is taking the appropriate test.
Registration is not complete until you have paid the participation fee online.
Reminder: Teachers/principals must register students. Parents/students may not register students.
Registration opens March 1 and closes March 31, with no late registrations allowed.

Only a nonprogrammable calculator may be used during the exam. Please refer to the following list:

2022 State Math Contest Awards Ceremony
On Friday, June 3, 2022, Indiana students were recognized for their performance after competing in the Indiana State Math Contest during the ICTM Outstanding Scholars Awards Ceremony. State plaques were awarded to the top 3 finishers (or more in the event of a tie) and medals were awarded to students who finished in the top 5%. State plaques and medals for students not in attendance will be mailed to the attention of the registering teacher at the school address provided during registration. Below is a summary:
PreAlgebra – 148 competitors
Algebra I – 108 competitors
Geometry – 80 competitors
Algebra II – 32 competitors
Comprehensive – 67 competitors
Please mark your calendar for Saturday, April 22nd, 2023 for the 2023 ICTM State Math Contest next year! The website will be updated in the coming months.
