Get Started in the Math Video Challenge

Welcome!

Please note: Registration for the 2017-2018 program year will open in September.

We're so excited you want to be a part of the Math Video Challenge!

Students + Educators: See the information below so you can get started today.


In addition to having an awesome time creating a video with your friends, you could win prizes for participating and advancing in the contest. And who knows...maybe you'll be the next big Math Video Challenge star!

Here's what you should do if you'd like to participate in this program:

1: Assemble a Team of 4 Students + Find an Adult to Be Your Team Advisor

An adult team advisor must start the registration process and agree to lead the team. Your team advisor will be in charge of getting permission from each participating student's parent/guardian and will have to review and approve your team's video before it can be officially submitted into the contest. The most common team advisors are math or technology teachers, but a parent or volunteer also can be your team advisor.

2: Get Started on Your Video Project

Although your team won't be able to finish or submit any videos into the contest until your team advisor has finished the registration process, you still can get started on your project! We provide lots of resources for students and team advisors to create a video. Use the links below to get started!

3: After Your Team Has Been Registered, Submit Your Video!

After your team is registered, you can submit your team's video and get your team advisor to review and approve it. Just for participating, your team will be entered into the Boogie Prize Drawings. And best of all, you can make as many videos as you want for this program, and each video makes you more likely to win a weekly or monthly prize drawing!


Engage your students in project-based learning that makes math fun, interactive and exciting. The Math Video Challenge has been recognized by STEMworks as an Accomplished Program, because, simply put, it works!

Here's what you should do if you'd like your students to participate in this program:

1: Get the Guide for New Team Advisors

The Guide for New Team Advisors is included in the Math Video Challenge Playbook. From registration to video creation, the Guide for New Team Advisors includes all of the information you'll need to be a successful leader in this program.

2: Assemble a Team of 4 Students + Complete the Registration Process

As the team advisor, you must start the registration process. You will be in charge of getting permission from each participating student's parent/guardian and will have to review and approve your student's video before it can be officially submitted into the contest. Register for the 2017-2018 Math Video Challenge here (opening in August). You can find detailed information about registering and getting parent/guardian permission in the Guide for New Team Advisors.

3: Guide Your Students, As Needed, As They Create Their Video

Every team is different and some groups of students will need more help from their team advisor than others. Your students are the filmmakers in this program, so you do not need to be a technology or math expert to be a team advisor. But, you may need to help your students edit their script, plan out logistical arrangements or work together as a team.

We provide lots of resources for students and team advisors to create a video. In addition to the detailed information and tools included in the Math Video Challenge Playbook, you and your students can use the links below to get started!

4: After Your Students Have Completed Their Video, Get It Submitted + Approved

Before your students' video can be officially submitted into the contest, you as the team advisor must review it and approve it. You can find detailed information about how video uploading and approval works in the Math Video Challenge Playbook. Usually the entire approval process takes only 5-7 minutes (depending on how long your students' video is).
