The Franklin Math Bowl is a competition held on a Saturday in early November for middle school students. The competition consists of an individual 25-question, multiple choice test and a team problem solving test. The Bowl has four contests: sixth grade, seventh grade, regular eighth grade, and eighth grade algebra I. Both individual and school awards are given in each contest, usually split between large and small school divisions. The Franklin Math Bowl is co-sponsored by the ETSU Department of Mathematics and the Upper East Tennessee Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
