Math Beauty Contest

The theme of the VCTM 2003 spring conference was “Mathematics: A Universal Network of Beauty.”  Johnny Lott, President of NCTM, commented in his address to participants that he liked the conference title and thought it might be nice to have a Mathematics Beauty Contest.  We thought this would be a great way to give students throughout Virginia a chance to show their problem solving ability in “beautiful ways.”  We are looking forward to having many “beautiful” entries for this “Mathematics Beauty Contest.”  Mathematics truly is a beautiful subject and we want the world to know it.

Check back in the spring of 2022 for the next math beauty contest!

We congratulate the 2021 winners of the beauty contest!
