Math Olympiad


Math Olympiad is a program where students display and develop their mathematical problem-solving skills while participating in a series of monthly competitions.  The “mathletes” train together, learning and practicing different strategies to solve complex problems. The “mathletes” compete both individually, and as a team against schools across the nation. 

The goals of Math Olympiad are: 

  • To stimulate enthusiasm and a love for mathematics. 
  • To introduce important mathematical concepts. 
  • To teach major strategies for problem-solving. 
  • To develop mathematical flexibility in solving problems. 
  • To strengthen mathematical intuition. 
  • To foster mathematical creativity and ingenuity. 
  • To provide for the satisfaction, joy, and thrill of meeting challenges. 

Our Math Olympiad program is led by Mr. Ponseti and Mrs. Henderson.  For the 2017-18 school year, we will be meeting on the following Tuesdays, after school in room A3 or A6:
