Millard Oakley STEM Center
Tennessee Middle School
Austin Peay State University (APSU), Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), Tennessee Tech University (TTU), and the University of Tennessee Martin (UTM) would like to invite your participation in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Jr. High/Middle School Mathematics Competition to be held virtually on Thursday, April 8, 2021. We look forward to future years when we can have middle grades math contestants back on campus; but while the pandemic is still with us, we are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity for students virtually.
All 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students are eligible to enter the contest. There will be three divisions of the contest. Regardless of the course in which a student is currently enrolled, sixth graders will compete with sixth graders, seventh graders will compete with seventh graders, and eighth graders will compete with eighth graders. Each individual school is responsible for selecting and preparing contestants. Prior tests can be found at http://www.apsu.edu/math-contests/middle-school-math-tests.php.
The contest will be administered synchronously to contestants via an online platform on Thursday, April 08, 2021, from 10:00 to 11:05 AM (CDT).
After the contest, scores from all four testing sites will be collated, and a state winner will be named in each of the three grade divisions.
A three-question trial test is available along with the instructions for taking the actual test, to allow for trying out the technology, as well as helping students become comfortable with the platform. Items on the practice test should not be considered representative of the math on the test. We encourage you to take the Practice Test on the technology that the student intends to use for the test on April 8.
As of 11:05 AM CST the tests are now closed!
Thank you so much for participating!
