What We Do

The League exists to identify students who have unusual mathematical ability, to give them recognition and encouragement, to bring them together with similarly gifted students, and to encourage the study of topics not commonly taught in the high school curriculum.

League activities are designed to challenge students with high and unusual mathematical ability, but also seek to influence general mathematics education. We believe that a program for gifted students is shortsighted if it is not also developed in a way that strengthens mathematics education for all students.

How We Work

Member schools belong to a division of five to ten schools.  Each school has a competing team with a maximum of eight students, and unlimited individual competitors.  The teams in each division come together for five meets each season. Our regular season runs November through February.

The top scoring team, and in some circumstances the top two teams, and the top scoring students in each division are invited to the State Tournament which is held on the second Monday in March at South St Paul High School.

Currently there are 172 schools in the League in 25 divisions.  Over 3,000 students participate.
