Mathleticus is an individual Math competition
designed for students who love to solve intricate Math problems.
The tournament is open to students from JHS 1(Grade 7) to SHS1 (Grade 10). Students who won honourable mentions and medalists from this year’s Math Olympiads (SASMO, South African Math Olympiad,
American Math Olympiad, International Kangaroo Math, etc) are encouraged to participate. Talented Mathematics students are also encouraged to participate in the tournament.
The 2 lowest‑ranked students are paired; a
question is read and projected, and students are given 45 seconds to solve the
problem. A student may buzz in at any time, and if s/he answers correctly, a
point is scored. If a student answers incorrectly, the other student has the
remainder of the 45
seconds to answer.
A total of 3 questions are read to the pair of students, 1 question at a time, and the student who scores the higher number of points (not necessarily 2 out of 3) progresses to the next round and challenges the next-higher‑ranked student.
If students are tied in their matchup after 3 questions (at 1‑1 or 0‑0), questions should continue to be read until one is successfully answered. The first student who answers an additional question correctly progresses to the next round.
This procedure continues until the 4th-ranked
Mathlete and his/her opponent compete. For the final 4 matchups, the
first student to correctly answer 3 questions advances.
