Stevens Math Olympiad

Online registration will open Friday, March 8 and close Monday, April 29.

The Stevens Math Olympiad is a free mathematics competition for students in grades 3-12 that entails solving mathematical and logical problems, as well as demonstrating a joy and excitement for mathematics. This year's Olympiad is held on Saturday, May 18, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 12 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

Students are offered 15 problems to solve over the course of 90 minutes in five divisions: grades 3-4, grades 5-6, grades 7-8, grades 9-10 and grades 11-12.

This outreach activity aligns with and supports permanent weekly math circles at public schools in the local 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.

An awards ceremony will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2019 to recognize the top scoring students from each division.
