K-STATE'S ALL-UNIVERSITY OPEN HOUSE, APRIL 18, TO FEATURE 13TH ANNUAL MANHATTAN MATHEMATICAL OLYMPIAD FOR STUDENTS IN GRADES 5-12

MANHATTAN -- A challenging and fun mathematical competition for students in grades 5-12 again will be part of the All-University Open House, Saturday, April 18, at Kansas State University.

The 13th annual Manhattan Mathematical Olympiad will be 9 a.m. to noon, with the solution session and awarding of prizes from 5-8 p.m., both in 101 Cardwell Hall.

The olympiad is free and no registration is required. Competition is being offered in three age levels: fifth and sixth grades; seventh and eight grades; and ninth through 12th grades. Participants need to bring their own paper and pencils.

The Manhattan Mathematical Olympiad is modeled after the U.S. and International Mathematical Olympiads, as well as similar events in Europe. It provides students the opportunity to expand their mathematical skills.

For more information about the event, contact Yan Soibelman, professor of mathematics at K-State and chair of the Manhattan Mathematical Olympiad committee, at 785-532-0584 or soibel@math.ksu.edu. Problems presented a previous olympiads are available at http://www.math.ksu.edu/~soibel/
