Mathematical Puzzle Programs (MaPP) High School Challenge

What:   a competition for teams of 4-8 high school students, supported by the SCSU Center for Excellence in Mathematics and Science and MAA's Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grant Program. Any high school in Connecticut is welcome to participate. We expect most participating schools to bring one team, but where there is exuberant interest or a large math team, a school may bring two teams. (If you want to bring a third team contact Braxton directly.)
When:   April 6th, 2018 (registration/lunch 12:30pm-1:00pm, competitors leave campus by 4:30pm)

Preparation   Competition booklets from past years can be found on the MaPP website

If you have any questions about the competition, please send an email to Dr. Braxton Carrigan (

The registration fee for this event will be $60 per team, roughly half the expected fee for upcoming years. (Thanks to the MAA's Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grant Program, don't wait until next year!) T-shirts, lunch, and awards will be provided.
