trying my hand at a web based survey. If you would like to take a short
survey, I am trying to find out who is visiting this web page, and why
they are here.

The survey is limited to the first 100 respondents. Hopefully, it will bring you back here when you are done.
Someone chose to use offensive language in their responses. You should know, the survey provider records your computer's IP address. This means YOU CAN BE FOUND!
Minnesota Junior High School Mathematics League was founded in 1986
by Marlys Henke. It was originally formed with eight junior high
schools from the City of St. Paul, and was modeled after the Minnesota
State High School Mathematics League (MSHSML). The two organizations
share the same
The purpose of the JHML is to encourage students to participate in math contests, serve as a "farm club" for the MSHSML, enable students to meet mathletes from other schools, and to provide recognition for students excelling in mathematics. It also serves as preparation for the annual MathCounts competition. The meet topics are based on the MathCounts topics.
Member schools belong to a division of two to fifteen schools that often are aligned with their athletic conference competitors. Each school has a team ( or teams ) with a maximum of six students with no more than four eighth graders. Individual participation is also encouraged for those not on the official team. The teams in each division come together for five meets each season. During the 2009-2010 season the League had almost 2000 students from 120 schools around the state of Minnesota participating in 24 divisions.
Ms. Henke started her teaching career in 1968,
teaching math and chemistry in Zambia, Africa. In 1970 she joined the
St. Paul Public Schools where she taught chemistry at the old Mechanic
Arts High School. In the late 1970's Ms. Henke taught math and science
at Highland Park Junior High School. In 1980 she became a member of the
math department at St. Paul Central High School. She became the coach
of the Central Math Team in 1984 and brought them to the State
Tournament every year from 1990 to 2004,
winning the State Championship in 1997 and 2001. In June of 2004
she retired from active teaching, but remains active in the Senior High
At the 2005 Summer Conference of the Minnesota
Senior High School Math League, MS. Henke was inducted in the first
class of the League's Hall of Fame.
Ms. Henke has also coached Minnesota's American Regions Math League teams and has been State Director of the American Junior High School Math Exam given every November.
Because of declining participation, we will not
be having a Ninth Grade Division next year. Ninth graders are
encouraged to participate in the Senior High School Math League. A link
to their web site can be found under the "Links" button.
The topics for the 2012-2013 have
not changed . Again this season no calculators will
be allowed on any of the events. Topics can be found
under the "Topics" button to the left as well as in the Coach's Manual
found under the "Coach's Information" button. The Coach's Manual has
been updated to reflect this change.
COACHES: The Letter of Intent for the 2013-2014 Season
is available under the "Coach's Information" button to the left.
Essentially all of the Meet 5 results have come in. There are a few straglers that have yet to come in, but I have posted statewide results anyway.
The old web site location at USFamily should disappear sometime. Please make sure all of your bookmarks are updated. There are still a few people that are looking for results on the old web site. They have NOT been updated.
Congratulations to the Edina Valley View White team from the SW Metro 1 Division. They scored a PERFECT 208 on Meet 1. We believe this is the first time in the history of the JHML that a team has had a perfect meet (all 6 individual scores of 28 and a team score of 40).
Congratulations to the Jackson Wahl, Blake School, Wayonka B Division; Daniel Stein, Minnehaha Academy, St. Paul West Division; and William Drew, Wayzata Central Middle School, Waytonka Division. They all three had perfect seasons (140 points).
In the survey someone suggested adding a search function. I did a little research and found a free search engine I could use. (See the box on the left.) The usual rules seem to apply (Searching John Smith will find all the John's and all the Smith's, where as "John Smith" will only find John Smith. Case does not seem to matter.) It will not highlight the search term on the page you go to, but you can use your browser's search function to find it again.
