25th Math Day
25th Math Day

Teachers are welcome to register their schools starting on Friday, Sept. 12, for the 25th Annual UNL Math Day, being held on Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014. Registration will be open online at

Here are the class sizes for Math Day:

Class I 1,500 students or more
Class II 750 to 1,499 students
Class III 250 to 749 students
Class IV 125 to 249 students
Class V 75 to 124 students
Class VI 0 to 74 students

These class sizes will not change from year to year. However, each year you can request to move up if you would like.

There are four rounds of the bowl team competition in the morning and six rounds in the afternoon, plus the championship rounds. There will be a cap at 100 bowl teams.

Here is the price breakdown:

• Bowl Team Price - $50:
Includes 6 student registrations and lunches, up to 2 lunches for teachers/coaches and the entry fee for 1 bowl team (3 members and up to 3 alternates)
• Additional Students - 7 through 15: $7 per student (includes lunch)
• Additional Students - 16 or more: $6 per student (includes lunch)
• Individual Price (No Bowl Team) - $7 per student (includes lunch, and we will cover cost of lunch for 1 teacher/coach)

The number of students who qualify to take PROBE II is 40 (plus ties). This reduction from 50 to 40, and last year's change in the bowl competition schedule, have allowed us to give PROBE II students time to eat lunch! In fact, Dr. Judy Walker, chair of the UNL Department of Mathematics, will host a lunch for all Probe II competitors at the end of the exam and before the afternoon bowl rounds begin for Classes I, II and III.

The registration deadline is Friday, Oct. 17. Please email us at with questions or check out our website for more information.
