4th and 5th Grade Contests

Math League's 4th and 5th grade contests can add interest and excitement to any mathematics program. These are some of the first math contests many students will compete in--and the most fun with math they've ever had! All of the questions cover basic 4th and 5th grade topics, including: properties of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, time and calendar questions, shapes, perimeter, money, basic ratio and percent, rounding numbers, remainders, integers, and more. These contests challenge students to show their understanding of basic principles through numerical and word problems that encourage an open, flexible approach to problem solving. These contests are provided for intraschool competition, and come with certificates of merit for your school's high scoring students.

Contest Format: Each contest consists of 30 multiple-choice questions that you can do in 30 minutes. On each 3-page contest, the questions on the 1st page are generally straightforward, those on the 2nd page are moderate in difficulty, and those on the 3rd page are more difficult. The 4th and 5th grade contests are for use in your own school or district. Since results are not used for interschool comparisons, we do not enclose a score report form.

Please Note: Only schools may purchase the current year's contests. If you are not a school, you may purchase contests from previous school years by either buying any of our contest problem books or buying a contest subscription package.
