Math Olympiad                  

The International Math Olympiad is an international competition that aims to discover, encourage and challenge mathematically gifted school students while fostering international relations between students and teachers, as well as sharing and exchanging information of mathematical syllabi and educational systems between countries. Created in 1977 by Dr. George Lenchner, an internationally known math educator, the Math Olympiads went public in 1979. Last year nearly 150,000 students from 6,000 teams worldwide participated in the Olympiads. All 50 states and about 30 other countries were represented.  The highlights for students are the five monthly contests, given from November to March. No traveling is required. These contests provide an incentive for students to intensify their study of math. The Math Olympiad club will meet once a week after school for 1 hour. Due to the intensity of the math, this club will be by invitation only. Traci Jones and Heather Coughlin will be the contacts for this club at
