Monroe County Math League provides a venue for students from schools in the Monroe County area to participate in monthly challenging math competitions after school during October through February. The season culminates in a county-wide all day competition in March, usually hosted at an area college. The top students from the county then attend the state competition in April.

Each month, five of the participating high schools host a competition. During the competition, students participate in three out of six of the categories. In each category, students have 10 minutes to independently solve three challenging math problems related to the given topic. Points are awarded only for correct final answers: 1 point for question 1; 2 points for question 2; and 3 points for question 3. Students are assigned to teams of ten, with no more than four seniors per team and no more than eight upperclass students per team. The individual student scores are added together to create a team score and determine the winning team at each site.

At the county meet, teams compete in a variety of events. A power question whose solution requires in depth explanation is completed as a team and usually involves several branches of mathematics. A set of team questions, which are similar in content to the individual questions, also allows students to work together as a team. A set of relay questions requires students to independently but the answer to the first question is used to complete the second question whose answer is then used to complete the third question. Only the final answer is graded. Students also independently answer questions that are similar in scope and content to the monthly questions.
