This competition is open to all U.S. and Canadian based schools, whether the school has a Mathletics subscription or not. Students with a home subscription are not eligible for this event. Current Mathletics schools may add additional students for free for the duration of the competition. Schools must be registered for the competition to be eligible for prizes.

Winners will be determined by the highest average of total participation points in a school. This will be calculated by taking the total number of participation points divided by the total number of registered students in the school.

To allow fair competition between schools of different sizes, class points are calculated on an “average points per student” basis. For example, a school of 500 students scores a total of 1,000,000 points during the competition. Their league table ranking would be based on an average of 2,000 points per student.

Points from Live Mathletics and Curriculum Activities will be awarded to students individually and are only recorded throughout the competition period listed below:

October 30th 00:01am – Competition opens

November 12th 11:59pm – Competition ends

Students earn 1 point per correct answer, or 2 points if they have selected their bonus level.

Students earn 10 points per correct answer, with a maximum of 300 points from any individual activity during the competition period.

We are excited to announce that the winning subscribed school will receive: 5 free Chromebook’s and 30 Mathletics swag bags.

We are excited to announce that the winning unsubscribed schools will receive: One FREE year of Mathletics for the winning school!*

*Prize can only be awarded to a new Mathletics school for a maximum of 6 grades. The free subscription period runs 12 months from the initial start date.

Once the 2017 Math Showdown event has ended, all results will be verified by the Mathletics team. Upon completion of verification, the winners will be announced on the Mathletics blog and on the 2017 Mathletics Showdown website. All results as determined by the Mathletics team are final.

Registration officially closes on October 30th, 2017.
