The Kettering Mathematics Olympiad is a competition designed to identify and encourage students with interests and abilities in mathematics. This will be Kettering University's 13th Mathematics Olympiad. Our goal is to develop the Olympiad into one of the most prestigious mathematical competitions in the region. The examination is designed for students in grades 9 through 12. However, any student working towards a high school degree who is curretnly enrolled in a public school, private school or a home-school program can sit for the examination.(Number of visitors since October, 2013)
The competition consists of six challenging problems and has a time
limit of four hours. The problems range from "mind-benders" that
require little mathematical skills to problems that require the
knowldge of geometry, tirgonometry and beginning calculus. No
calculators are permitted for this competition.
Previous competitions have been held exclusively on the Kettering
University campus in Flint, MI. We are please to announce that this
year our competition will also be held at Kettering Fairmont
High Shool in Kettering, OH, as well as at the Kettering University
campus in Flint, MI. Kettering University, the city of
Kettering, and the high school were named in honor of the same person -
Charles "Boss" Kettering; hence the extension of the
examination to Kettering, OH seemed like a natural. Note that the
same examination will be given in both locations at the same time -
Same challenging exam, two great locations. Please see the
left panel for registration information, prizes, copies and solutions
of old exminations.
For additional information, please contact
Dr. Ruben Hayrapetyan or Dr. Joe Salacuse.
