Description and Rules

The Missouri Collegiate Mathematics Competition is a team event open to any college or university in the state of Missouri. It will be held on the Thursday and Friday prior to the annual Missouri section meeting of the MAA.

Since the meeting is being held virtually, the same will be true of the contest. The contest will be in two parts, one on Thursday evening, March 25, and the other on Friday morning, March 26. Precise starting times are being finalized and will be posted when finalized. Two and a half hours are allotted for each portion of the contest.

Any college or university in the state of Missouri can enter up to two official teams of 1–3 undergraduates each to compete in the competition. A one-person team will be allowed only if this person is his or her college's only representative in the competition. An unlimited number of unofficial teams will be allowed, but will not be eligible for awards. Registration is free for both official and unofficial teams. A completed registration form for each team must be received by Monday March 22, 2021 to ensure entry in the competition. Late registration will be accepted when feasible.

Each participating college/university must have a designated sponsor who will be responsible for ensuring the integrity of the competition at that institution. No calculators or computers or reference material may be used during the competition. The contest consists of challenging mathematical problems, comparable to, but not quite as difficult as the Putnam Exam. Contest problems will be sent electronically to the sponsor, and solutions will be uploaded by the sponsor to a central repository. The contest committee will grade the contest problems with the goal of having scores determined in time to be announced Friday evening.
