Unfortunately, Math Day will not be held in 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns.  We hope to be able to bring the event back in the spring of 2022.

Math Day is sponsored by the UWG Department of Mathematics

Registration Form

Each school can bring in a maximum of 12 students, 3 for each subject level.

Registration will be closed on February 21, or when 200 students have been registered--whichever happens first.

You will have an opportunity to make substitutions on your roster when you check in on-site at Math Day; however you will not be able to add additional students on-site.

If you have any questions, feel free to email Dr. Scott Gordon at sgordon@westga.edu .
