San Diego Math Olympiad

March 26, 2016

8:30 AM - 11:15 AM

Cognitive Science Building 002

The San Diego Math Olympiad is an invitation-only competition that marks the culmination of the SDMC regular season. Qualification is based solely on students' performance on the San Diego Math League exams held earlier in the season. Students previously recognized as falling in the top bracket of each division of each SDML automatically qualify. When redundancies are eliminated from these lists, a few additional students are selected for invitation to bring the total number of students invited in each division to the mid-20's.  The exact numbers selected will vary.

The San Diego Math Olympiad is a proof-styled competition. Papers are scored according to the completeness, rigor,and quality of a student's solution viewed as a whole; mere answers do do not suffice.

A few parent Volunteers are needed to supevise student check-in and to proctor the exams.

The exam content is generously provided by the experts at the Art of Problem Solving, who also score and rank the overall competition.  Scoring is done by AoPS off-site.  Results of the SDMO will be announced here and by electronic mail.
