General Information

The Lexington Mathematics Tournament (LMT) is a middle school mathematics competition modeled on the Harvard-MIT Mathematics Tournament. It is sponsored and run by the Lexington High School Math Club in Lexington, Massachusetts.

Motivation

In high school, there are overwhelmingly many opportunities from all sorts of math leagues and contests and competitions, whereas there are far fewer in middle school (small regional leagues and MathCounts). We also realize that the transition from middle to high school math can be difficult. Inspired by tournaments such as HMMT that provide challenging problems to high school students, it is our goal to offer middle-school students an equally fun competition to help bridge the gap to high school mathematics and encourage them to continue their pursuit of mathematics in all of its forms.
