More Information on this Folder

Students who get involved in mathematics competitions often have an 'edge' over classmates who do not. Competitions encourage students to put in extra time studying, preparing, and solving problems. Students also may learn to work together in solving problems and working toward a goal. Also, students involved in a competition together have an incentive to teach one another and explain problems to teammates.
