Homeschool Math Contests




Haddon Fox offers a list of dozens of math contests open to individuals and which do not require gathering up teams -- a requirement that often poses a challenge for homeschoolers. Fox, age 9, wrote in to tell us about his site, which features a free deadline reminder service and links to helpful articles, such as

  • "Think Math Contests!" by Howard and Susan Richman
  • "Pros and Cons of Math Competitions," by Richard Rusczyk
  • "Contests in Your Curriculum," by Laurie Bluedorn
  • "Contests for Homeschoolers," by Sue Richman

The site also lists many more regional meets sponsored by colleges and universities, spanning almost every state in the union.

I noticed that this young man's sister has a Homeschool Writing Contest site at homeschoolwriters.com/default.aspx 

No More Fighting With Writing

Contests can be great motivators for homeschoolers practicing their writing skills. Finding the right writing contest can make the homeschooling experience much more fun!

 Listed on the contest chart are many great contests that homeschoolers have been, are, and will be enjoying. Although some are for homeschool students only, a majority of contests allow other types of students as well. We hope the charted contests help make you a better writer. 


 Also on this website you will find writing resources and hints. Listed on the Curriculum Reviews page are descriptions of our favorite writing and grammar programs.
