Fremont Unified Student Store (FUSS) is pleased to be able to offer the California Math League (CAML) test to FUSD Students in grades 4 through 12. We are offering a CAML for Grades 4 and 5. We are also offering a separate CAML Algebra 1 test that anyone can take. CAML is part of the Math League (www.themathleague.com). Over 1 million students take part in Math League competitions each year. FUSS is 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works to support the schools and students in FUSD.
The CAML tests offer challenging math problems for students. These tests are optional for students, and are offered for fun. There are three different tests available for this event. You can choose which test you want your student to take.
The test will cost $10. Payment will not be refunded if you do not show up for the test. All proceeds will benefit FUSD schools.
The following schools offer the CAML test, either through the school or through the school’s math club. If your child attends one of these schools, you need to take the test at your school instead of with FUSS. It is usually free, too.
These tests are open to all students. The tests will be offered during the month of May at a location in Fremont to be determined. If your student is interested in taking this test, please take this survey so we can see if there is enough interest. You must take this survey in order to be notified when the test is scheduled.
Each contest’s questions cover material appropriate to each grade level. For the 4th and 5th grade tests, questions may cover: properties of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, time and calendar questions, shapes, perimeter, money, basic ratio and percent, rounding numbers, remainders, integers, and more.
For the Algebra 1 test, questions range from basic algebra skills, to more difficult problems, requiring creative solutions by applying algebra 1 techniques.
Each contest consists of 30 multiple-choice questions that you can do in 30 minutes. On each 3-page contest, the questions on the 1st page are generally straightforward, those on the 2nd page are moderate in difficulty, and those on the 3rd page are more difficult.
Your student cannot take two tests on the same day. If your student takes a test at school, and again with FUSS, the results will not be valid. Also, your student can only take one of the 4th grade, 5th grade or Algebra 1 test with FUSS.
