Mustang Math Tournament

The Mustang Math Tournament (MMT) is an annual middle school competition run by Mustang Math. The tournament is held synchronously both in-person in the Western Washington Area and online.

Competition Structure

The tournament consists of three core events and a Mystery Mare round, all of which are team events. Each event has a duration of approximately 1 hour. Students form teams of up to 4 to participate in all of these events over the course of a day. Based on the grade level of the team members, teams may be placed in either the Foal, Colt, or Stallion division. In addition to the standard tournament events, Mustang Math also hosts various math-related activities during the tournament.

Mystery

The Mystery Mare round is a MMT unique round. The round structure is changed yearly and is not announced until the day of the tournament. Past Mystery Mare rounds have included pressure and relay events.

Activities

Mustang Math activities are fun 1-hour sessions during the tournament where students can participate in one of several different activities. These activities all have some correlation to math but aim to show other, more fun, unique, or creative sides to math. Past activities have included Estimathons and Pixel Art competitions.
