We're All About Community
The Math Masters program has been an integral part of communities throughout Minnesota since 1989. It is designed to be accessible by communities and schools regardless of size, location (urban or rural), public or private, and also includes home schooled students.
Since its inception, Math Masters has expanded to include communities in states surrounding Minnesota. Originally begun as a 5th grade math competition program in 1989, Math Masters expanded to include 6th graders in 1995. It now welcomes approximately 5,500 5th and 6th grade students each year.
Teachers, parents, coaches and others who live and work in communities where Math Masters competitions are held each year volunteer their time each year to provide fun, educational and safe events for student participants. Minnesota cities that host Math Masters competitions include Alexandria, Apple Valley, Austin, Bemidji, Chaska, Duluth, Eagan, Grand Rapids, Hutchinson, Inver Grove Heights, Lakeville, Mankato, Maplewood, Marshall, Parkers Prairie, Prior Lake, Robbinsdale, Rochester, Sartell, Sauk Rapids, Shoreview, St. Paul. Additionally, competitions are held in Fargo/Moorhead; Hammond, WI; and Highlands Ranch, CO.
Math Masters maintains its roots in the city of Austin, Minnesota, where founders Lewis Aase and Julia Espe started the program.
