8:45am - 9:00am Virtual Check-in

9:00am - 10:30am – Middle School Math Olympiad
ASMS invites students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades to participate in the third annual Math Olympiad for middle school students. The Olympiad is a fun, one-hour written examination whose problems will require students to use imagination and creativity rather than advanced mathematical skills. Prizes will be awarded to all students achieving Honorable Mention in the Math Olympiad. There is no entry fee.

10:30am-12:00pm – Math Festival (open to all Middle School and High School students)
Mathematics Festivals inspire students to explore the richness and beauty of mathematics through activities that encourage collaborative, creative problem-solving. The Festival introduces kids to the beauty of mathematics by providing interesting, inspiring, engaging, thought-provoking problems in a social and cooperative atmosphere. It’s an event at which students play with mathematics.

Success is not measured by the number of problems solved nor students’ speed, but rather by how long students stay engaged and persevere with activities and by the breadth and depth of their explorations and insights. Festival activities are designed to open doors to higher mathematics for students – doors that are not at the top of the staircase, but right at street level.

Cost: Free

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
