Program Details

The exciting world of Competition Mathematics can often be classified into theory building and/or problem solving. Of course all mathematicians solve problems, while only a few are great theory builders. Theory building involves developing repeatable solution strategies that can be applied in problem solving and the building of structures that enable us to see patterns out of what appears to be chaos.

This Competition Math classes take students in an exciting journey full of theory-building AND problem solving enrichment. It is designed to encourage children to embrace problem solving as an exciting and uplifting social activity.
