Math Competition at Oakton

Held once every fall and spring semesters, Oakton's Math Competition is the AMATYC Math Competition for Oakton students. This competition is a 20-question, 1-hour multiple-choice test that covers "precalculus" material, i.e., anything a student might take before calculus, not specifically over material in Oakton's precalculus course.

Old exams and answers are available at the AMATYC Math Competition website.
