Michigan Mathematics Prize Competition Comes to NMU!

The Michigan Mathematics Prize Competition (MMPC) is sponsored by the Michigan Section of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) to encourage students to develop their interests and abilities in mathematics.

The students with the top 100 scores in the two parts of the competition are honored at an awards program. Approximately $20,000 in scholarships ranging from at least $250 to $2,500 will be awarded this year.

Part I of the MMPC is open to all students in Michigan high schools. This exam consists of 40 multiple-choice questions involving topics from high school mathematics.

From over 6,000 participants in Part I, the top 1,000 students are invited to take Part II of the MMPC. On Part II of the exam, students work on five challenging problems and write their solutions providing full justification and proof of their claims.
