Most people, whether they realize it or not, use mathematics in varying degrees in their everyday activities. Mom, for instance, utilizes mathematics when she goes grocery shopping, or plans out the family budget. Dad uses mathematics when he works in his carpentry shop, or makes out his income tax returns. The daughter uses mathematics when she cuts out a pattern for a new dress, and their son utilizes mathematics for his model-building hobby.
Contrary to popular thinking, mathematics, not music, is the only true universal language. Mathematics is one of the most useful and fascinating divisions of human knowledge. It is a part of the experience of all people, regardless of how far they have gone in school. Mathematics helps us in many other important areas of study, and has the power to solve some of the deepest puzzles man faces. Mathematics is the very foundation of scientific technology, and a clearer exegetical Biblical understanding.
The Mathematics Olympiad is open to all youth in grades 3 through 12. Students with a strong background in mathematics are encouraged to participate. Calculators are not permitted in Level I and Level II competitions. Please note that Levels III, IV, and V participants are encouraged to bring and use their own calculators. All youth participating must enroll for the AIM Math Olympiad by the required deadline. Each student is encouraged to compete in the daily (Tuesday & Wednesday) competition to best prepare them to excel in the national Math Olympiad. Each participant will be assigned to the appropriate age/grade level and category of the competition. Each round will be given an allotted time for the exercises. There will be a variety of mathematical exercises measuring basic operations in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and word problems.
