  • SUMO - Stanford Math Tournament
    coordinators at stanford math tournament at gmail com Registration Q How many students may be on a team A A team may consist of one to eight students Q What should I do if I do not have enough people to form a complete team A If you are interested in joining with other incomplete teams you can indicate this on the registration form You can also choose to compete as an incomplete team However teams of fewer than eight students will be at a disadvantage Q Can I participate in SMT remotely A No All participants in SMT must compete at Stanford on the day of the contest If you cannot compete at Stanford you may view the problems and solutions online shortly after the conclusion of the contest Q Do students on the same team have to be from the same school A No Traditionally the majority of SMT teams have been comprised of students from the same school but this is not required There is no limit to how many teams a school can bring Q Can international teams participate in SMT If so how do they register A Yes International teams can definitely participate in SMT and can register via the same online form Invitation letters are available upon request Testing Q Are calculators allowed A No Calculators are not allowed on any portion of the tests Check the SMT rules for information on permitted items Q Can I take only the individual test A Yes You can choose to do so by indicating on the registration form Your team will not receive any points for the tests it does not take Q What topics may appear on the tests How hard are the tests A See the mathematical expectations document for guidelines on what topics may appear on each test It is also advisable to look at the test from previous years in order to get a sense of the typical style and difficulty of SMT tests Q Which individual test should I take A If you have little or no experience with contest math we strongly recommend you take the General Test Looking at past tests will help you get a sense of the difficulty of each test Logistics Q Can we purchase SMT shirts A You can order SMT shirts in the registration form All shirt orders must be received by the registration deadline Q Will food be provided A For lunch you can order pizzas and drinks in the registration form There will also be a variety of dining options on campus Tresidder Union will be open We will also provide snacks in the morning and afternoon Q Do we need to have a teacher or coach attend SMT in person A No you are not required to have a teacher or coach at the tournament Q How do I get to the tournament location A The tournament will be located mainly in the Math Building Building 380 in the Main Quad

  • SUMO - SMT Information
    may submit multiple times for any of the problems but only the last submission for a given problem will be graded Ties are first broken in favor of the participant who answers the most questions correctly In the event that multiple participants solve the same number of problems the tie is then broken by the time of the last correct submission the tie is broken in favor of the participant with the earliest last correct submission In the unlikely event that a tie for a top three position still stands after the tiebreaker we may allow the tie to stand or we may hold a second tiebreaker for the participants that are still tied The second tiebreaker will consist of one problem in the appropriate subject area Participants may submit an answer to the problem at any time and will immediately be told whether the answer was correct or incorrect Participants may submit multiple times The tie is broken in favor of the participant that solves the problem earliest Mathematical Expectations See the mathematical expectations document for guidelines on the topics that may appear on each test Common Mathematical Notions See the common mathematical notions document for details on mathematical conventions used at SMT Acceptable Answer Formats See the acceptable answer formats document for rules on answer simplification Computational Aids The following may be used during the contest Rulers compasses protractors and graph paper Dictionaries for contestants who need assistance with English The following may not be used during any testing portion of the contest Calculators Other computational aids such as slide rules and abaci Reference materials such as books and notes Communication devices such as cell phones and computers Any drawing aids not expressly permitted Grading Scoring Scores on each round are normalized to compensate for differences in difficulty between tests The procedure for score normalization is as follows For each test all scores are divided by the top ten average which is the mean of the ten highest scores For individual tests the normalized scores are then multiplied by 50 for subject tests and 50 for the general test to produce a weighted score This is to make the easier general test worth approximately 50 as much as two subject tests An individual s total contribution to his her team s overall score is the sum of the weighted scores on the two subject tests he she took or the weighted score on the general test For the team and power tests the normalized scores are multiplied by 400 to produce a weighted score A team s overall score is the sum of the weighted scores on the team test the power test and all of the team members individual tests In this way individual tests will be expected to contribute around 50 of a team s overall score and the team and power tests will each contribute around 25 The top scores on the team power and individual tests can be determined using just the raw scores
