The MSUM Mathematics Department will be hosting the Tri-College Math Contest for area middle and high school students on campus over spring break. More than 2,000 students are registered for the contest from locations extending to Bismarck, Larimore, Grand Forks, Thief River Falls, Mahnomen, Wadena, Alexandria, and Breckenridge. This year’s contest problems were drawn up by the Concordia math department and volunteers from all three departments and the MSUM CSNS are helping out with the contest.

Awards will be given to the top ten individuals and the top four teams in large and small school divisions and in three grade categories, 11-12th, 9-10th, and 6-8th.
