Contests

This spring, we're hosting two team-based contests. Come on over to Bard for some fun and challenging math problems!

April 22, 2017: Purple Comet! contest 

     REGISTER

Gather a team of up to six to compete in the team-based Purple Comet! contest.

We're hosting both the middle school and high school contests, and this year we are also encouraging parents and math teachers to join us on our non-competitive teams, just for fun!

Start by completing our registration form, and we'll be in touch with more information.

April 30, 2017: Girls' Adventures in Math  (GAIM): A Math Olympiad for Girls

Gather a team of four girls from your school, and head to Bard College for Girls' Adventures in Math (GAIM)!

GAIM is a themed Math Olympiad for upper elementary and middle school girls, followed by an afternoon of community-building games.

The Math Olympiad is a 60-minute, 16-question competition followed by a 20-minute tiebreaker round.  Teams of four students from the same school compete in one of two divisions: Upper Elementary, for grades 3-5, and Middle, for grades 6-8.

2014: Bard Math Circle to Host Purple Comet Math Meet for Middle School Students

This coming semester, in addition to hosting the AMC 10, the BMC will host the Purple Comet Math Meet for middle school students in April. This competition is formatted a little differently from the AMC in that students form into teams of up to six. We plan on having several prep sessions to help students get used to working on problems with their group, as well as to work on general problem- solving skills. The exact competition date is flexible, and will be determined based on team availability.

We will hold three preparatory sessions at Bard on the following dates. These sessions will help acquaint students with Purple Comet style questions, general problem solving techniques, and will get them used to solving problems in a group. Attendance at these sessions is strongly recommended.

Sessions:
Sunday, February 9th at 1:00 PM
Sunday, March 2nd at 1:00 PM
Sunday, March 16th at 1:00 PM

The February session will also serve to introduce students to their teams and to fix a date for the actual meet.

To register for the Purple Comet, please fill out the forms below. We will register the teams participating with the Purple Comet. Please do not additionally sign up on their site. We have a registration form for individuals, who we will arrange into teams. Alternatively, if you would like to form a team with your peers, you can use the group registration form to sign up together. Teams that have all members from the same school qualify for a different category in the contest. Teams may only have up to six members. Please also fill out the waiver form below, or we will not be able to host you at Bard.
