Note: In order to better achieve our mission/purpose, starting in 2019, we are no longer a tournament.



We High Schoolers Love Math!

And we want to spread that love to the grades below us as well. Starting this year, we are no longer a Math Tournament! We've come to realize that not everyone enjoys only competition math, so we've shifted our focus to making math more enjoyable for everyone in the form of an Expo. Rather than making kids sit for an hour taking individual tests, we've decided to make the event more immersive, collaborative, and most of all, fun! Read about the new format for the event here.

We're not just an expo - we're an experience!

We strive to make WWPME a fun and inspiring experience for every one of our participants. Because of this, our mini-events are geared towards exposing students to the fun side of math. Our mini-events include exciting activities in cyptography (Secret Codes), estimation (Estimathon), and so much more. You can find more information about our mini-events here.

When and where is the expo held?

The expo takes place at West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South, and this year (2019) the date of the event is October 26, 2019!

The problem solving section of the expo takes about 1 hour in total. Each minievent afterwards will last 30 minutes.

The entire event lasts a bit longer: students in grades 3-5 should arrive at 8:45 AM and will leave by 1:00 PM; students in grades 6-8 should arrive at 2:00 PM and will leave by 6:15 PM. We cannot accept significantly late participants.
