About The Math Game

The Math Game (formerly Who Wants to Be a Mathematician) was active from 2004 to 2020. It brought together high school math students from around the US and beyond for a quiz-style competition leading to cash, scholarships, and recognition for the participants. Its creators were Dr. Bill Butterworth (DePaul University) and Dr. Michael Breen (AMS), with Breen serving as the game host during its run.
