Mathematical Minutes Contest Information
The Mathematical Minutes Video Contest asks members to create educational and entertaining videos. Chapter members select a math topic and create a fun, informative, two- to five-minute video.
The following material pertains to the 2023 Mathematics Minutes Video Contest.
The contest is run by Doral Academy Charter High School under the direction of Sam Koski. For the 2022-2023 academic year, submissions will be accepted starting on February 1, 2023, and will be due by 11:59 pm (EST) on February 28, 2023. The chapter's sponsor must view the final video before submission and submit the chapter's entry form. The entry form will be emailed to all primary sponsors by January 31, 2023, but an example entry form is available below so you can see the information that will be required from sponsors.
Schools may submit no more than three videos. Only the top submission per school is eligible for prize awards. Award money may either go to the chapter or to the students. All submissions must be signed off by the chapter sponsor to ensure they have seen the video and approved the content. Only videos submitted with G-rated material will be accepted. All videos must be closed captioned.
Eight videos will be chosen by mid-April 2023, for the final round of judging. Chapters will vote to rank the top eight videos. The prize money to be awarded will be split amongst the final entries. Final award amounts will be determined by the votes cast for winners, along with input from the Mu Alpha Theta's Governing Council.
Videos may be submitted with high school content through calculus. Students no higher than geometry or algebra 2 are in the THETA category, students in precalculus are in the ALPHA category, and calculus students are in the MU category. Based on the course content from these levels and the material covered in your video, you will designate at which level your video will should be judged.
Sponsors may find the ID number for their members by logging into their chapter online and clicking the "View Members" link on the left.
