A. MathCON reaches out to students every year with 2 related goals: To contribute to their academics by challenging and entertaining them with more rigorous and insightful math problems, and to promote high-quality math education. Making money has never been, and never will be the goal. In fact, MathCON is organized by Concept Schools, a non-profit 501(c)(3). A registration fee is necessary in order to cover the expenses MathCON incurs by providing the prizes (for both the tests and the photo contest), awards, venue for the finals and award ceremony, special guest speaker, printed booklets, food, labor, system-software expenses, website maintenance, question pool creation, and more. We are doing our best to improve the quality of the organization by adding new components every year based on the feedback from the students, teachers, and the community. As much as we would love to make the registration free, this would not be a feasible solution for the survival of the MathCON competition in the upcoming years.
A. Payments can be made with credit card.
A. The Finals Competition is the event that occurs after all students have taken the Online test.
