MPTF Math Contest 2021

The MPTF Math Competition is an annual contest held by MPTF to provide challenging and intriguing problems to young and aspiring students. The problems are written by volunteers who have experience in competitive math and are eager to share their ideas. This year, we will be hosting the 3rd annual MPTF Math Contest online through Zoom. This event is a wonderful opportunity for problem solvers to practice their critical thinking and teamwork skills.
