Super Bowl

We are looking for your thoughts on how the 2016 competition might change as teh new Common Core State Standards are implemented in your classrooms. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey to help us understand how to best serve your students.

This event will allow students in grades 7-12 to compete against other students from across the county in a variety of mathematics courses.

Location:
Mary Stuart Rogers Student Center
MJC West Campus
Modesto, CA

Schedule:
April 9, 2015
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.
Competition starts at 9:00 a.m.
Awards ceremnoy will be completed by 2:30 p.m.

Coach's Resources:
If you have any questions, please contact the event co-chairs:
Michael Bice - CSU Stanislaus MBice@csustan.edu
Ross McKenzie - Modesto Junior College Mckenzier@mjc.edu

With the implementation of Common Core, some schools are in the process of modifying curriculum and have changed their mathematics course structure. If your school's structure does not match the course format mentioned in the Competition Format below, please contact one of the competition co-chairpersons to help determine an appropriate way to organize your teams

Competition Format:

The Blitz
The Blitz is an individual event for which quick computational skills are needed. Up to fifty multiple choice questions may be asked during a given period of time. The student with the highest number of correct answers shall be declared the winner. Ties will be broken by a series of weighted questions.

The Huddle
The Huddle is a two-person event. An individual CANNOT compete in this event without a partner from his/her school from the same subject level. Each person on the team works the same set of problems individually during the first 30 minutes. In the last 15 minutes the team members compare their papers. During this time, teammates may discuss quietly the work they are doing. The team will turn in one answer sheet. Each school is allowed up to five teams per grade level. Scoring is similar to the Blitz.

The Bomb
The Bomb is a five-person team relay event. Teams must be five entrants from the same school. Each school is allowed two official teams. The "test" shall consist of five pages, each containing five questions. Each member of the team will work one problem from each page. After the student answers a question on each page, they will pass that page along to the next member of the team. That page CANNOT be returned to that student. The event will have a time limit. Ties will be broken by the time of completion of the test by the team. Calculators may not be used on this event.

Junior High School Bomb teams consist of two 7th Grade Math students, one 8th Grade Math student, and two other students currently from the same school.

High School Bomb teams consist of one student enrolled in Geometry, one in Advanced Algebra, one in Pre-Calculus and two other students currently enrolled in a math course offered at the same school.
