Log 1 Contest 2011-2012 December 2011 - Topic tests 1/2: Circles, Polygons and Pi; Equations/Inequalities; Instructions January 2012 - Topic tests 3/4: Number Theory; Applications; Instructions February 2012 - Individual, Instructions
Round 1 There will be two topic areas that the students may choose between: Circles, Polygons and Pi - Any concept having to do with circles and/or polygons. Equations / Inequalities -For this test, students will need to be able to solve a variety of equations and inequalities. In some cases, word problems may be given for which the student will have to first set up the equation or inequality.
Round 2 There will be two topic areas that the students may choose between: Number Theory - Advanced number theory, factors, primes, modulo, bases, etc. Applications - Primarily word problems at the Algebra 2 (Theta), Pre-calculus (Alpha) and Calculus (Mu) levels..
Round 3 The individual test is administered in the same manner as the topic tests.It is a 15-problem, 30-minute, individual test of general mathematics knowledge. Problems, to be solved without a calculator, will range from easy to difficult to provide confidence and challenges to all students. Problem selection and scoring will be the same as the topic tests.
Scoring Each student test score will be scaled to account for varying test difficulty. The test score will be divided by the maximum test score for that test and math division and multiplied by 100. A student’s overall score will be the sum of their scaled scores on the three tests and will thus be a number between zero and three hundred. The school score on the topic test rounds will be the sum of the highest student score on each topic test and math level for a total of six scores. On the individual test, the top two scores from each math level will accumulate towards the school score. There is a potential then of 600 points on each round for a maximum school score for the contest of 1800.
Rocket City League There are three 45-minute tests for each division, each consisting of 12 questions. o Explorer Division - Pre-Algebra students (or any student who has not yet entered Algebra I. Test content, however, will be at an advanced Pre-Algebra level) o Mercury Division - Algebra I students o Gemini Division - Geometry students o Apollo Division - Algebra II students o Discovery Division - All students who are currently enrolled in Pre-Calculus or who have completed Pre-Calculus, including all Calculus students
Test Dates o Interschool Test: Oct 31 – Nov 14, 2011 o Round One: Jan 16–27, 2012 o Round Two: Feb 13–24, 2012 o Round Three: March 12–23, 2012
