Schedule: Saturday, March 16

8:00 am - 8:20 am Check-in, lobby of ASMS

8:20 am - Welcome

8:40 am - 10:00 am – Middle School Math Olympiad
ASMS invites 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students to participate in the fourth annual Math Olympiad (5th graders can sign up also). 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.

10:00 am-12:00 pm – Math Festival (open to all 5th - 12th graders - Olympiad participation not required)
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 joy 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 or 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 not at the top of the staircase, but right at street level.

Olympiad Winners are announced at the end of the Math Festival.

Cost: Free

Registration Deadline: Thursday, March 14
