The annual sumdog competition is a voluntary contest for students who choose to participate.  Students log into the website to answer math questions based upon the Common Core Education Standards to earn points.  Each student can answer up to 1,000 questions and their score is the number of questions they answer correctly.

Although the contest is over, students can use their sumdog accounts anytime during the year to practice their math skills.
