Sponsor I just wanted to thank you for everything that Mu Alpha Theta has done to support me, including scholarships and summer grants. If they answer the question correctly before the first minute, they receive 16 points, if they answer before the second they receive 12 points, before 3 minutes, 8 points, 4 points before 4 minutes has expired and 0 points for anything, even the correct answer, after 4 minutes. Request to Review[ edit ] For fifteen minutes after the individual round and fifteen minutes after the team round students can file what is known as a "Request to Resolve", aka "RTR". If the sudden death method doesn't resolve the tie, in other words both students have exactly the same answers, then a tie-breaker question is made and the person to turn in the correct answer the fastest wins the tie.

This occurs when a student interprets a problem in a drastically different, yet completely legitimate, way than the problem intended and thus changes the problem entirely.

At the states and nationals, there are many more different topic tests ranging from trigonometry to analytic geometry to complex numbers. The team score from the team round is then summed up with the score of the individuals of the team to acquire the total team score used in rankings.

For example, if no team turned in an answer to a particular question in the first minute but another team answered correctly in the second minute, the team will be awarded the full 16 points even though they answered it in the second minute; a third minute-answering team would get twelve points; and the fourth minute-answering team would get eight points. Members dedicated a tremendous amount of Sweepstakes points are awarded on a t-score based system, which awards points not only for relative place, but for relative scores.

For solving it in the first minute, they receive twelve points, during the second minute, eight points, and during the third minute, four points.

Correct answer in first minute 16 points Correct answer in second minute 12 points Correct answer in third minute 8 points Correct answer in fourth minute 4 points This round is NOT multiple choice. This encourages students to compete with other students who are taking classes of similar mathematical difficulty. There is an extremely rare status given to a RTR that is called a "unique interpretation". The scoring system usually is as follows: 4 points for each correct question 0 points for each unanswered question -1 for each incorrect question However at Nationals the scoring system is as follows: 5 points for each correct question 1 point for each unanswered question 0 points for each incorrect question Team Rounds In team rounds, teams of 4 people work fast to answer a problem in 4 minutes. Most students start at the level of math that they are currently enrolled in or have last taken and progress to higher levels.
