**Frequently Asked Questions**

**Who is eligible?**

High school students in the New York metropolitan area are invited to submit papers. Submissions from advanced Junior High School students may also be considered.

**At what level should I compete?**

There are four levels of competition. A participant’s level is generally determined by their current mathematics course:

**Level 1 **Currently taking Geometry

**Level 2** Currently taking non-honors Algebra 2 / Trig

**Level 3 **Currently taking honors Algebra 2 / Trig or Pre-Calculus

**Level 4 **Currently taking, or have completed, Calculus

**What is an appropriate length for a paper? **

Papers at Levels 1 and 2 are typically around 10 pages in length. Some papers at Level 3 and 4 are around 10 pages in length and some are longer. The *length* of the paper is less important than the *content* of the paper. The paper should demonstrate the substantial and authentic mathematical work of the student; it should not be primarily a regurgitation of other sources.
