What is a Virtual Tournament?

Virtual Tournaments are online tournaments held in a WebEx chat room with our host. We have students log in using their computers. They IM their answers to our host during the competition. It is important that they have speakers to hear the host, but a webcam is optional if they want to be seen and heard during the event. The students are introduced to a gameboard with mathematical topics and they select the topic when their team answers the question correctly first. The game goes on for 1 hour and the teams receive points based on how quickly they get the answer correct. Each problem must be solved in 3 min or less. We host virtual tournaments for schools or for onsite tournaments. We also do an invitational virtual tournament for all our onsite tournament winners so that they can compete against teams from around the nation.
