Briarwood Christian School Math Tournament


Saturday, January 27, 2018

Dear Math Team Coaches,

Briarwood will be hosting a Math Tournament (Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II) on Saturday, January 27, 2018. It is our intention to focus on training; therefore every entrant will cipher as well as take the written test. Each individual score will be the sum of the student’s correct written test answers (25 questions in one hour) and the student’s ciphering correct answers (20 non-stop problems at 2 minutes per problem). We have no penalty for guessing.

The written test will be a multiple-choice test taken in several classrooms around the school. The ciphering test will be one 20 question session given in the auditorium. I will send out a schedule after you register your team but all tests will be taken between 8 am and noon on Saturday.

We do not have an awards ceremony. Scores and awards will be mailed to the coaches along with copies of the tests and keys after the tournament. We hope you will bring a team to the tournament and that each student will gain something valuable from the experience.

There are past tests on the Briarwood website under ACADEMICS, HIGH SCHOOL.

Briarwood Math Department

Plaques for 1st three places in the Large School Division (High Schools with attendance of 750 or more in grades 10 – 12, i.e. all 7A and some 6A schools; magnet schools; private schools offering calculus; Middle Schools with 250 or more students per grade.) Plaques for 1st three places in the Small School Division (All not in the Large School Division)

Team scores will be determined by the sum of the top:

  • 8 players if a Large Division School
  • 4 players if a Small Division School

Schools can participate in the tournament with fewer students than 8 for Large School or 4 for Small School, but this obviously will affect the school’s overall team score.

Registration by email: Please fill out the attached form and email it to me.
Registration Deadline: January 19, 2018
Cost: $5.00 per student
