About the Olympiad

The Olympiad competition is an exam consisting of five challenging problems requiring only the mathematics appropriate for students' grade level. Participants are divided into three groups: Grades 5-6, Grades 7-9,  and Grades 10-12 and given three hours to write solutions to these problems.  Participation is free and open to all students interested in mathematics.  The top three winners in each group will get prizes.

The Award Ceremony will take place at 5 p.m. on the day of the exam in  Room A304, Wells Hall. During the Award Ceremony solutions of the problems will be given.

The problems given in previous years are posted below.

The Olympiad is conducted by the MSU Mathematics Department. You may contact us at mshapiro@math.msu.edu.
