Scope:International

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The Mandelbrot Competition takes place in five rounds spaced throughout the school year. Each round consists of seven short-answer questions valued by difficulty at one, two, or three points. The questions on the Mandelbrot Competition cover a variety of non-calculus topics such as algebra, geometry, exponents, probability, and a few others such as number theory or classical inequalities. The tests last forty minutes and are graded by the school coordinator, who then enters scores at the web site. The database that powers the Scorecenter pages makes it possible to view comprehensive standings only a few days after the contest is given and ensures accurate, up-to-date results. The contest is offered at the national level for more advanced students and the regional level for less experienced problem solvers. Since the tests at each level have several questions in common and are conducted simultaneously, a student may not take both tests. However, schools may participate in both levels, though schools new to Mandelbrot must enroll in the regional level.

Competitors are required to sit the examination.

Each round consists of seven short-answer questions valued by difficulty at one, two, or three points. Students are ranked according to their overall scores.
