MANHATTAN MATHEMATICAL OLYMPIAD ADDS UP THE FUN APRIL 16 AT ALL-UNIVERSITY OPEN HOUSE

MANHATTAN -- Area students in grades 5-12 can go for the gold -- in the form of some nice prizes -- at the 15th annual Manhattan Mathematical Olympiad.

The competition is part of the All-University Open House on Saturday, April 16, at Kansas State University. The competition is from 9 a.m. to noon, and the solution session and awarding of prizes is from 3 to 5 p.m., both in 146 Cardwell Hall.

The olympiad is free and no advanced registration is required. Participants should bring their own pencils and paper. Competition is offered in three age levels: fifth and sixth grades, seventh and eighth grades, and ninth through 12th grades.

The event is modeled after mathematical olympiads at the national and international levels. It offers students a chance to expand their mathematical skills as they seek solutions to some challenging problems.

More information is available by contacting 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.
