Contests

Contest Information

We offer four different levels of contests for students of different ages, experience levels and mathematics backgrounds. Each team consists of five students. Students compete individually and against different teams at the same time. The contest season runs from October to April. There are six to ten contests for each division every school year, administered by a math teacher in-school. Every year, students and coaches meet at an awards ceremony in late May with other participants to celebrate their achievement from the whole year. Last year, more than one hundred teams from New York City and across the country participated in the NYCIML. We hope that you will join us and experience the exciting competition atmosphere!

NYCIML Dropped Questions

We try our best to prevent the dropping of questions, but if and when it does happen, we would like to keep you informed. Therefore, we dedicate this page to keep you updated on which questions are dropped and the reason for it. There are currently no dropped questions and we hope to keep it that way.

Spring 2017
Division: Soph-Frosh
Contest #1, Question #6
Reason: There was a conflict with the solutions and resubmitting scores would be time-consuming for coaches.
