10 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.



The High School MaPP challenge is held each spring. MaPP is a national program that challenges teams of high school students in grades nine to twelve to solve problems connected to active areas of mathematical research. Schools may enter a maximum of two teams, each of which should have a minimum of five and a maximum of eight students. Each school is required to have at least one teacher or parent chaperone for each team, with at least one chaperone being a teacher sponsor. 

Students will:

  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

  • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

  • Model with mathematics.

  • Use appropriate tools strategically.

  • Attend to precision.

  • Look for and make use of structure.

  • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
