About the Mathematics Contest
Here is an opportunity for you to win money, a scholarship, and recognition. LACC invites high school students to enter our Annual Mathematics Contest to be held on our campus in March. Go to the registration section of this web site to register for the contest.

The problems to be solved in this competition require a solid algebra and geometry foundation. These problems challenge the student's ability to think and synthesize rather than recall standard solution techniques from their courses. We believe this will give students with different backgrounds a fair chance. Knowledge of trigonometry and calculus is not required.

Please know that calculators are NOT allowed to be used during the contest.

Minimum Qualifications to Enter the Contest
The contest is open to all junior high and high school students in Southern California.
