Math Olympiads

The Math Olympiad program was 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. 49 of the 50 states and about 30 other countries were represented.  At Timberlane Middle School students meet weekly to prepare for five monthly competitions between November and March.  These contests provide incentive for students to improve their understanding of mathematics, practice problem solving strategies, and the pride of accomplishment in solving complex math problems.  The contests are held at school so no traveling is required.  At the end of the school year certificates of participation are provided for all students along with special recognition for the top scorers in our school, as well as additional recognition for students scoring in the top 10% worldwide.
