In this level, the tournament format is the same. The tournament will consists of two rounds: Mental Math and Individual Challenge.
Mental Math (10 minutes) – Students will be presented with 40 problems (not 50) to be solved by students ‘mentally’. Students may not do any written work and only their final answers may be written. Any erasures or crossouts will result in the answer being marked wrong. Because of the emphasis on speed and accuracy, students are given only 10 minutes to answer as many of the 40 problems as they can correctly and legibly. Each problem worth 1 points. Maximum individual score on this test is 40.
Individual Challenge (30 minutes) – Students will be presented with 25 problems to solve. Each correct answer worth 5 points, 2 point for a blank answer, and no point for an incorrect answer. In general, the first 10 questions are easier, the next 8 questions are of intermediate difficulty, and the last 7 questions are harder. During this round, participants will be given scratch papers to do any calculation to reach final answers. Maximum individual challenge score is 125 points.
The mental math and individual test scores will be added to determine individual awards for a maximum of 165 points.
