||ABACUS International Math Challenge
||The ABACUS International Math Challenge was launched in 1997 as an independent math competition. Abacus is available to students around the world in 3rd through 8th grade. Every month, eight problems are posted for each of three age groups. Students are asked not only to solve the problems, but also to present the reasoning in their solutions. If a student submits an incorrect solution or is simply having trouble with a problem, a teacher will offer hints as to how to go about solving the problem, giving students multiple chances to succeed. The student with the highest score wins.
