The GCTM State Mathematics Tournament is an invitation-only math tournament that takes place in Macon on the last Saturday in April each year. Invited schools are asked to bring a single four-person team. Individuals are also sometimes invited to compete in consideration for the Georgia ARML team.
Invitations are based on results from math tournaments around the state. Any high school Varsity-level tournament may be a suitable State Math Tournament qualifying tournament, as long as results are submitted and the tournament takes place on or before March 31 each academic year.
The State Math Tournament consists of three rounds: a written test, individual ciphering, and, for the first time, a team round. The winning individuals are determined by the sum of the participant’s written test score and ciphering score. The winning teams are determined by the sum of the four individual scores plus the team round. Trophies are awarded to the top 15 individuals and the top 5 teams. The top team in each GHSA classification and in GISA that is not already in the top 5 also earns a trophy. Also awarded is the Steve Sigur Award for most improved individual performance over the previous year.
