The 60th annual UVM Vermont High School Prize Examination in Mathematics at South Burlington High School is scheduled for Wednesday, March 15, 2017 from 9:40 – 12:00 noon.

The UVM Prize Examination in Mathematics is a  41-question, 120-minute examination in high school mathematics designed to stimulate an interest in mathematics throughout the state at the secondary level and to increase contacts between college and high school teachers of the subject. The topics include the traditional subjects of algebra, geometry and trigonometry as well as probability, combinatorics and problems involving reasoning skills; all problems can be solved without using calculus. This is a non-calculator exam. The average number of students taking part in the contest is around 2000.

Interested students will have the opportunity to register online during math classes. Students may also register at any time by following this link to the online registration form.

State and regional prizes will be awarded at Math Day hosted on the University of Vermont campus in mid-May.
