## Logic-Based Problem Solving Math Competition Spring 2016

Game day is here. The Spring 2016 Math Competition was handed to your children during class this week. I asked them not to open the test until they can commit to spending 45 uninterrupted minutes. They should be sequestered in a quiet room with only a few pencils and good light. Siblings should be asked to be in a separate part of the house and not above the room in which the Mathlete is taking the test.
