The 2016 triMATHlon will be held at Doane University on Thursday, September 29th. Please Pre-Register.

The Doane University triMATHlon is a math contest in three stages designed for 9th -12th grade students.  The contest includes material typically taught prior to trigonometry and calculus in Nebraska  public high schools (up to and including 2nd year algebra). The three stages of the triMATHlon are:
Extreme Team Challenge  
Come prepared for the weather in this one-of-a-kind team challenge!  3-person teams will be presented with questions involving Doane's campus and have 45 minutes to prepare written solutions.    (Limit 2 teams per school - calculators allowed)
 45-minute Individual Written Exam 
This multiple-choice exam includes 30 questions. (All mathletes welcome - no calculators allowed.)
3 - Person Team "Math Bowl" 
This "quiz show" contest pairs 3-persons teams in a single-elimination tournament. (Limit 1 team per school - no calculators allowed)
The entry fee is $10 per mathlete and  free for two adult sponsors.  All participants will receive a Doane "triMATHlon" T-shirt!  We will provide students with a brain-boosting pre-contest snack and lunch in our cafeteria.   Registration begins at  8:30 AM, the contest starts at 9 AM and the awards ceremony ends at around 2:30 PM.


The Written Exam and the Team Math Bowl are taken in the Lied Science and Mathematics Building and the Extreme Team Challenge is a problem-solving event outdoors.
