Previous Qualifying Tests for the National Who Wants to Be a Mathematician

Below are links to qualifying tests for the championship game. Most students take the test online free of charge using Möbius, courtesy of our Technology Sponsor, DigitalEd.

For each year, there is a version without answers and a key with answers. Since the 2016 tests, Art of Problem Solving, the Who Wants to Be a Mathematician Online Community Sponsor, has hosted a Math Jam--an online chat--about the tests. Transcripts of those jams, which include fully worked solutions, are linked to below.

The indicated year is the year that the championship game, which takes place in January at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, was held. So, for example, the 2018 test was taken by students in the fall of 2017 to qualify for the championship game in January 2018. Until 2013 there was only one round of testing; since 2014 we've had two rounds of tests. Note: Tests for regional games are the same level of difficulty as the Round One tests from 2014 on.
