Join 150,000 students from 49 states and approximately 30 countries for a new Math Olympiad season. Last year there were close to 6000 Math Olympiad Teams! Math Olympiad problem sets provide opportunities for children to engage in creative problem solving activities which develop a child’s ability to reason, to be logical, to be resourceful, and occasionally to be ingenious. New concepts will be introduced briefly at the beginning of each session and a lot of time will be devoted to practicing skills in small groups with the help of parent volunteers. Students will also participate in the five monthly contests which will take place at HES. Awards for top honors are given at the end of the session.

Parents who have volunteered and attended most sessions during the course of the program will receive a 50% refund once the program is complete.
