The UNC Math Contest is designed to challenge students in grades 7-12, with younger students welcome to try if they have an interest. Thanks to support from the Daniels Fund, the contest is free and open to all K-12 students in Colorado. The contest is administered in schools around the state by volunteer teachers, math coaches, and parents who have registered in advance to receive the contest materials. To register to administer the contest, go to the registration page. If you are a student interested in participating, ask your math teacher about the contest at your school or email us at uncmathcontest@gmail.com.
