Math Olympiad

Program Details

Math Olympiad has a series of 5 contests running from November through March. All kids Grade 4 through 6 take up the same contest.  The aggregate of the 5 contests will be used by the Olympiad organization to pick the top scorers. PTA will additionally recognize top scorers per grade level to ensure that kids at lower grades are not at an unfair disadvantage. Kids below Grade 4 who enroll for the program will be compared against kids at Grade 4.  If your child is unable to attend a contest for any reason including sickness, they will not be able to retake the contest at a later date and will have a score of 0 for the contest as per rules of the Olympiad.

The practice questions will be from the Math Olympiad Contest Problem books and previous question papers sent across to the Olympiad chair. As Math Olympiad organization does not allow the questions to be posted in the internet or transmitted electronically, all practice materials will be sent as printed copies. All registrants need to comply with this requirement of the Math Olympiad and should not transmit Olympiad material electronically.

PTA provides a minimal set of 30 - 35 contest papers for preparation.

Larger material can be purchased online( Search for Math Olympiad Contest Volume 1 if parents choose to so.
