MathCON’s 2022 Photo Contest


We are so excited to announce that MathCON will again be hosting a photo contest along with the MathCON 2022 Competition!

If you are a student between the 4th and 12th grade you are eligible to join in the fun! Mathematics is all around us: Your favorite NBA players’ stats, the technology in your mobile phone, the Fibonacci sequence in nature, the Golden Ratio in architecture…the list is endless! Math can be practical, it’s all around us! We want you to show us where you see it in your day to day life. You might stage these photos, but you also might see something mathematical on your way to school!
