Test Information


The Power Round is a 80-minute exam focused on proof-writing. The content of the test focuses on a single subject matter that is usually significantly different from traditional competitive math problems.

The Team Round is a 50-minute exam consisting of 15 short answer questions.

The General Test is a 110-minute individual exam consisting of 25 short answer questions that is designed for students that have less specialized mathematical background.
The General Test is worth 60% of the Subject Tests.

The Subject Tests are two 50-minute individual exams consisting of 10 short answer questions. The subjects offered are Algebra, Calculus, Discrete (Number Theory & Combinatorics), and Geometry

The Guts Round is an 80 minute live-scored team exam consisting of 9 series of 3 questions each, whereby teams must submit answers to a previous round in order to gain access to the next. Subsequent rounds are both harder and worth more points than previous rounds.


Q: How many students may be on a team?

A: Teams consist of 6-8 members. Individuals and incomplete teams may be combined by organizers to form complete teams.

Q: Do students on the same team have to be from the same school or established mathematical organization?

A: No, you are free to form teams from outside of your school/in your area.

Q: Can I register for SMT 2024 Online as an individual?

A: To register as an individual, have a parent form an org on ContestDojo and add you as the singular student to your own team. During the registration process when creating the team, there will be a question asking you if you want us to combine you with other incomplete teams so that you can also officially participate in the team rounds.

Q: What schools or organizations can participate in SMT?

A: SMT 2024 Online will be open to all schools and organizations.

Q: Can international teams participate in SMT Online? If so, how do they register?

A: Yes, as long as they are able to take the tests in PDT time.

Q: Will SMT Online have Awards?

A: There are no physical awards, but we will be announcing results and providing digital certificates of achievement.

Q: Are calculators allowed?

A: No. Calculators are not allowed on any portion of the tests. Check the SMT rules for information on permitted items.

Q: What topics may appear on the tests? How hard are the tests?

A: See the mathematical expectations document for guidelines on what topics may appear on each test. It is also advisable to look at the test from previous years in order to get a sense of the typical style and difficulty of SMT tests.

Q: Which individual test should I take?

A: If you have little or no experience with contest math, we strongly recommend you take the General Test. Looking at past tests will help you get a sense of the difficulty of each test.

Q: Can I use the problems from previous SMT tests listed below in my classroom/book/etc?

A: Yes! Feel free to use these problems provided you cite us in the format (Stanford Math Tournament [Year] [Round] [Problem #])
