The Stevens Math Olympiad is a mathematics competition for students in grades 3-12 that entails solving mathematical and logical problems, as well as demonstrating the joy and excitement of mathematics. This year's Olympiad will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the Stevens Institute of Technology campus in Hoboken, New Jersey.
The Olympiad has the following goals:
- To stimulate enthusiasm and a love for mathematics
- To introduce important mathematical concepts to students
- To strengthen mathematical intuition and stimulate creativity and ingenuity
- To attract bright middle and high school students to Stevens Institute of Technology
This outreach activity aligns with and supports permanent weekly Math Circles at public schools in the New York City area. The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Stevens piloted its first Math Circles in the fall of 2017 and is currently expanding to other schools.
