Salinas, Calif. – Over 300 upper elementary, middle and high school students from Monterey County public and private schools will assemble at Hartnell College from 8:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 13, 2017 for the 49th annual Mathletics Competition.

The morning begins with the competition, held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., where students take exams in Integrated Math, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Statistics. Professors then grade the exam while students enjoy lunch and a rotation of various STEM learning opportunities. Demo topics this year include: Hartnell STEM Student Research Poster Demonstrations, A Carting demo, and a Coding demo. The Awards Ceremony begin at 1:45 p.m.

Mathletics is a math contest held each May to encourage excellence in math and recognize the achievements of individual students and the schools they represent. The Monterey County Office of Education and California State University, Monterey Bay Mathematics Department sponsor the event.

The top graduating high school senior taking the Advanced Calculus exam will receive the Richard Morgantini Scholarship of $1,250. New this year is the Robert P. Balles Scholarship, which awards $1500 to the highest scoring Advanced Calculus team. First, second, and third place winners in each level will receive gift cards, gift certificates and an Olympic-sized first, second or third place medal.

Mathletics is funded in part by long-time supporter, the Monterey County Richard Morgantini Foundation, as well as Chevron, and Robert P. Balles.
