Mathematics Contests: A Handbook for Mathematics Educators.
Johnson, David R.; Margenau, James R.
This handbook is designed to provide guidance for organizing and conducting mathematics contests so that all students can have the opportunity to participate profitably in competitive mathematics activities. A wide variety of competitions is described that have been designed for mathematics students of all ages. The distinctions and advantages of each type are outlined. General and specific procedures for including a mathematics competition at a school are presented. Existing mathematics contests, field days, and leagues, along with contact persons, are listed by each National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) region. Appendices present samples of award certificates, invitations, rules, and contest questions. (MP)
