Description: This event brings to the USA 500 of the most talented high school age mathematicians from more than 80 countries. Washington, DC, hosts the Olympiad, with opening ceremonies on July 4, 2001. The American mathematics community uses this opportunity to promote the importance of mathematics for all students and to celebrate the accomplishments of our best and brightest students. During the competition, students work individually over a two day period on six challenging problems, presenting their solutions as essay-style proofs akin to those produced by research mathematicians. The "Road to IMO" outlines the series of math competitions designed to identify, recognize and reward excellence in mathematics; and links to those competition's problems and comments. Registration, schedule, resources, volunteer information, and more.
