The Competition

Girls' Adventures in Math (GAIM) is a themed math competition for upper elementary and middle school girls, followed by strategy-based games.

The day begins with a 60-minute, 16-question Round 1 and a 20 minute research question Round 2, followed by an afternoon of strategy games.  Teams of four students from the same school compete in one of two divisions: Upper Elementary, for grades 3-5, and Middle, for grades 6-8.

The sixteen questions that you’ll face in GAIM are designed to challenge the way you think, to create new avenues in your problem solving.  To get a sense of the kinds of problems you’ll face, visit our sample questions page.

Also, we make sure your friends won’t miss out on the fun, because they will be in the room with you!  GAIM is run completely on a team-based format because genius is never alone. Together, we are better, faster, smarter.

If you’re excited by the idea of creative, strategic, out-of-the-box problem-solving, GAIM will rock your socks off!
