Facts and figures associated with the contests offered by Greater Testing Concepts are located in this part of the web site. Schedules for the year appear below, while other information can be accessed via the links above.
Greater Testing Concepts
will not be offering contests for a three-year
period, until the 2017-2018 school year.
The schedule lists all the important dates associated
with the Mandelbrot Competition. The schedule for the
Mandelbrot Team Play follows beneath.
The 2013–14 Mandelbrot Competition
The school coordinator administers the contest at any
convenient time during the contest window, then
retains all testing materials until that weekend. On
Thursday solutions become accessible to school
coordinators via their account. The coordinator grades
tests and enters scores for each student at the web
site. If a school has a conflict with one of the
testing weeks, we ask coordinators to reschedule the
contest for the week just before the regular week and
contact us to obtain testing materials early. Proctors
should retain all contests and students should refrain
from discussing the problems until the Sunday
following the official testing week. For more detailed
information regarding running the Mandelbrot
Competition, consult the Instructions form, available
at the Forms page.
The 2013–14 Mandelbrot Team Play
The school coordinator may give the Team Play at any point during the two weeks listed. After making copies, the coordinator then mails student responses to Greater Testing Concepts. A panel of graders will evaluate their papers on a Saturday morning, generally two full weeks after the contest window. Please note that the Team Play is open only to schools that participate in the Mandelbrot Competition.
