Advisory Board Members
Students enrolled in grades 6-8 are eligible to participate in iLearn Schools Math Contest. Students enrolled on a part-time basis are not eligible. Participation in iLearn Schools Math Contest competitions is limited to three years for each student.
Only one team (of up to four students) per school is eligible to compete. However, schools are encouraged to bring up to four additional students to compete as individual alternates. These students will be eligible for individual rankings and prizes, only. Team members will be eligible for both team awards and individual awards. It is recommended that your strongest four students form your school team. Teams of fewer than four will be allowed to compete; however, team test score will be computed by dividing the sum of the team members’ scores by four. Consequently, teams of fewer than four students will beat a disadvantage.
Reasonable accommodations may be made to allow students with special needs to participate. Requests for accommodation of special needs must be directed to the coordinators in writing at least three weeks in advance of the contest. This written request should thoroughly explain the student’s special need as well as what the desired accommodation would entail. Many accommodations that are employed in a classroom or teaching environment can not be implemented in the competition setting. The coordinators will review the needs of the student and determine if any accommodations will be made.
Registration and Fees
Registration can be done through the contest website at mathcontest.ilearnschools.org/registration. The cost is a flat fee of $150 for each school no up to 8 students they register.
