GRISSOM TOURNAMENT

Date

The 2022 Grissom Math Team Tournament was to be held on Saturday April 9, 2022 at Grissom High School in Huntsville, AL, but the Alabama State Ciphering Contest is scheduled for the same date.  We are looking into a virtual tournament around that time.  Please watch here for more information.

About

The Grissom High School Mathematics Team cordially invites you and your students to participate in the Grissom Mathematics Tournament to be held between March 31, 2022 and April 5, 2022. This year, the tournament will be held remotely—each participating coach will receive the tests via email. The test will be administered on one day only, completed within the instructed time slot. The test will be distributed via email on Thursday, March 31st. Scores will be submitted by Tuesday, April 5th.  

​ 

There will be five levels of competition: Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Comprehensive. Each school may enter as many students in each level as desired. All students will participate in both the written exam and the 3-4-5 team test. To compete at the Comprehensive level, students may be currently enrolled in any mathematics course. For all other levels, students must be currently enrolled in or have completed the mathematics course at that level and cannot be enrolled in or have completed a higher-level mathematics course. 

​ 

The individual test consists of 25 multiple-choice questions and 3 tiebreakers. The score will be four times the number of correct answers minus the number of incorrect answers. In place of the ciphering competition, we will have a 3-4-5 team competition. The school score for each level will consist of the top four test scores from each school added to the team test scores.
