Math Masters challenges students to use critical thinking skills and problem solving abilities, and gives recognition for academic effort and achievement.  The events include individual and team competitions in a wide range of math areas to allow students with many interests and backgrounds to excel. These challenges are the culmination of a year-long preparation as team members work to improve their math skills.  

Most years, as many as 5000 students compete at 35 different sites around the state of Minnesota and in Wisconsin as teams and individuals.  This year, Lakeville South hosted 178 students from 37 teams representing 13 schools.
