The First Annual Middlesex Math Madness Tournament will be held on Saturday, June 14, 2014 at the Memorial Elementary School in Burlington, MA. Schools were invited to register 5-member teams of students in grades 4-6 to compete face-to-face.  Teachers who have brought teams before to this type of tournament insist on returning year after year. The opportunity for students to grow mathematically is unsurpassed, the problems are clever, engaging and challenging, and the atmosphere is exciting for students and teachers alike. Last year 70 students from 13 schools participated in the Elite Math Competition in Marlborough, MA.
Sponsored by Burlington Public Schools, the Middlesex Math Madness Tournament was able to accept up to 26 teams from Middlesex County. There will be teams competing from Ayer, Billerica, Burlington, Cambridge, Dracut, Lowell, Marlborough, Newton, Sherborn, Tewksbury, Tyngsboro, Waltham and West Newton.  Each team will be accompanied by a teacher who can proctor a team from another school. Mid-morning drinks and snacks will be served.
Calculators will not be permitted. Every student will receive a certificate of participation, a t- shirt, and awards will be given to high scoring individuals and teams.
