The James S. Rickards Fall Invitational is a math competition for elementary, middle, and high schools. Run entirely by the Rickards Mu Alpha Theta Team, the Invitational is one of the largest competitions in Florida with approximately 700 students from 36 schools competing last year. This year's competition will be Saturday, November 10th, 2018.
Registration is now open! If you would like to register your school for this year's Invitational, visit the Registration page and fill out the form with your schools information. Registration will be available until Monday, November 5th, after which late registration will be available until Wednesday, November 7th. As in years past, we will offer a Statistics Bowl that will take place during the Calculus Team Round (Round 1), and each school may sit at most one team. The Statistics Bowl will not count towards sweepstakes. Students competing in Statistics Bowl will not be able to take the Open test.
This year the Invitational will be hosted at two testing centers: one at James S. Rickards High School in Tallahassee, FL and another at Miami Palmetto Senior High School in Pinecrest, FL. Please see the Invitation for more details.
