Who is eligible?

Any student who attends a school in Central Rivers AEA and is currently in sixth grade regardless of the level of math they are taking. This competition is open to sixth graders only.

Test topics

Test topics will mirror the Iowa Core Math Domains at 6th Grade. The topics will be The Number System, Expressions and Equations, Geometry, Statistics and Probability, Ratio and Proportional Relationships. There is one group test that involves questions from any of the testing topics. Students will be able to use calculators on any testing round. Students will need to bring their own calculators and pencils with them.

Practice Tests

You can use previously used tests to give your students extra practice or hold your own Math Bee to determine who is eligible to go to the regional Math Bee.  To access practice tests, please complete this form.  After completing the form, you will receive an email with a link to a folder that contains previous years’ tests.


Calculators can be used and teams can bring their own calculators for use during the test.  The only exception is that phones cannot be used as your calculator.

Why leave anyone out? We don’t want students not to be able to participate just because they didn’t make the team. Some students just want to be part of a group or activity with their peers. Some students are not as strong mathematically but still wish to take part in a math competition without all the team pressure.  Sometimes some team members are unable to attend, so an alternate can take their place and become a competing team member.
