Build Better Math Students Through Contests!
Students looking to build their mathematical thinking and problem skills are invited to join our Math Olympiad Teams. Our goals with Math Olympiads are:
- To stimulate enthusiasm and a love for Mathematics
- To teach major strategies for problem solving
- To strengthen Mathematical intuition
- To foster Mathematical creativity and ingenuity
Elementary (4th – 6th grade) Math Olympiad Teams form in the fall and meet weekly from mid-September through mid-April.
In each session, students will learn problem solving strategies and exercise their minds completing challenging problems.
Here’s a sample problem.
Hannah gives clues about her six-digit secret number
Clue 1: It is the same number if you read it from right to left.
Clue 2: The number is a multiple of 9.
Clue 3: Cross off the first and last digits. The only prime factor of the remaining four-digit number is 11.
What is Hannah’s six-digit number?
With problems like these, you can see that students must develop more than just computation skills to find the correct answer. This is part of what makes Math Olympiad rewarding and fun.
Contests are administered once-a-month from November through March. Students will receive a certificate of participation as well as individual awards and trophies.
