Eastern Michigan University
Michigan Math Prize Competition (MMPC)
Eastern Michigan University is proud to host the 58th, 59th, and 60th MMPC from May 2014 - May 2017.
But first, we want to thank Stephanie Edwards for serving as director of the MMPC for the last three years – the success of the competition is due in large part to her leadership. We are grateful to her in helping us through a smooth transition as Eastern Michigan University begins its turn as host of the competition.
About the Competition
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.
Exams from previous years can be found online.
An informational poster for your students can be downloaded here.
We are looking forward to another year of a great competition.
