Description: Samples of the Annual College of Charleston Math Meet include PDFs of recent written tests; "All-Day Sprints" such as coded quotes, scramble, polymath, grids sprint, and "Blatant Propaganda Sprint"; math team relay; math brainstorm; and "marathons" -- problems so challenging as to inspire exploration in the month leading up to the Math Meet. Most problems cover algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. Since 1978, the C of C Math Department has invited bright, interested high school students to its campus for innovative and exciting mathematical competitions called Math Meets. In doing so, the department has helped high school teachers throughout the Southeast region to motivate their students to excel; and through the lecture that exposes the students to cutting edge research in mathematics, to recognize a role for this subject outside of the classroom. Read full rules for participating in the competition, register online, and see names of recent Math Meet winners.
