Math Talent Search Day

The UAB Math Talent Search Day began in March 2003, sponsored by the Department of Math and the College of Arts and Sciences (then the UAB School of Natural Sciences and Mathematic). The event continues to be held every year during the fall, bringing students and their teachers/coaches to UAB for this math contest with a twist.

The two-hour, 10-question written test is designed for 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students and incorporates both algebra and geometry skills, emphasizing reasoning ability. The four highest scorers in each grade are recognized, and school awards are presented to the three schools having the highest composite scores of three students in each grade.

Below you'll find problems and solutions for some of the past Math Talent Search Day contests. We hope to see you at a future event!
