We are focused on creating a community where math is cool, helping students find their joy of math, and encourage kids to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers.
We emphasize continuous learning and send participants home with solutions that will help them learn and grow in their math and problem-solving skills.
We encourage students to solve problems in a way that makes sense to them. There is no "right" or "wrong" way. There may be quicker or more elegant ways but that doesn't make one "right" and one "wrong."
We want students to see math as it is in the real world. Real world math involves working with others. As such, each of our contests has a team round where students work together. They can bounce ideas for how to solve the problems and check each other's work. This has two benefits: 1) students learn to show their work because it benefits them to do so, and 2) students learn to listen and work with their teammates to solve problems - just as they will in the real world.
So, come math with us and see how much fun math is!
There are 3 different contest levels and each is a bit different.
Do you enjoy math? We don't mean doing repetitive problems over and over, or problems that you have to do in a specific manner to receive a good grade. We mean do you enjoy being given a challenging problem that requires you to think and be creative? And do you enjoy working with others who like thinking and being creative as well?
If yes, check out NNVMath’s Competition Team. Our Competition Team goes to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) each year to participate in ARML. Going to ARML is a fun and rewarding experience.
