The Math Olympiad program at Matsumoto started in 2010. It was supported by PTA and run by parent volunteers. We had 120+ students in the year of 2014-15.
The Math Olympiad program runs from September 10th to March 10th and is open to our 4th – 6th graders. Our team of over 100 students meet once a week every Tuesday or Thursday morning to learn different problem solving techniques and practice solving non-typical math problems.
The goals of the program are:
- To stimulate enthusiasm and a love for Mathematics
- To introduce important Mathematical concepts
- To teach major strategies for problem solving
- To develop Mathematical flexibility in solving problems
- To strengthen Mathematical intuition
- To foster Mathematical creativity and ingenuity
- To provide for the satisfaction, joy, and thrill of meeting challenges
