41st Annual
Tulare County Office of Education
Math Super Bowl


March 24, 2014
Visalia Convention Center

The 41st Annual Math Super Bowl will be held on Monday, March 24, 2014, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Exhibit Hall of the Visalia Convention Center.

The event is open to seventh and eighth grade students. Each Tulare County school may bring two seventh grade and two eighth grade teams. Each team consists of five members.

Participants compete in three events:
  • Power Bowl - Students will work independently to solve 35 multiple-choice problems in a 40-minute period. All test materials will be furnished, including pencils and scratch paper. There is no penalty for guessing. Individual trophies will be given to the top five students in each category. Top scorers from each school will be recognized with a Power Bowl Individual Honors Ribbon.

  • Pro Bowl - Students will be divided into teams of five students from different schools. They will be given one open-ended problem to solve in a 45-minute period. The Pro Bowl will be evaluated on the thoroughness and accuracy of the answer. The problem will be scored by a committee of judges. Judges will look for natural breaks in the distribution of scores. Those in the first break will receive Superior ribbons, the next break will receive Excellent ribbons.

  • Team Bowl - Students will compete in teams of five from their own school. Each team will be required to complete 20 multiple-step problems in a 40-minute period. Judges will look for natural breaks in the distribution of scores. Those in the first break will receive Superior ribbons and the next break will receive Excellent ribbons.
Non-graphing calculators will be allowed for all tests.

Awards are given to students in both large and small school categories.


Register your team for the Math Super Bowl by March 11, 2014.
