Huntington University is proud to host a High School (each fall) and a Middles School (each spring) Mathematics Competition. The purpose of these competitions is to provide a means of fostering mathematical interest and expertise among students.  

Mathematics Competition Dates


Both contests are held at the Merillat Centre for the Arts (MCA) from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Participants should arrive between 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.  

If you have questions, please contact Aspen Dirr (Student Coordinator) at, or Dr. Brian Rice (Faculty Sponsor) at or via phone at (260) 359-4248.

Huntington University Mathematics

The growth of technology in our society presents greater needs for individuals with analytical skills and experience in the development and use of technologies. Concentrations in the mathematical sciences prepare students for a wide variety of careers requiring problem solving, logical reasoning, and applications of current technologies. The mathematics program at Huntington University combines the individual attention normally associated with small liberal arts colleges with the educational opportunities and research-active faculty normally found only at major universities.

The normal route into mathematics at Huntington University begins with a year of single-variable calculus followed by introductory linear algebra and multivariable calculus or perhaps probability and statistics and a course in differential equations. These courses prepare students for further work in mathematics, computer science, the physical sciences, and engineering and form the usual introduction to the Mathematics major. Students may accelerate their progress through Huntington's mathematics program through advanced placement programs at the high school level.
