For the 31st year, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs will host the Colorado Mathematical Olympiad.

An expected 400 middle and high school students from around the state will spend the morning of April 25 at the competition. Students are given four hours to complete five essay-style problems.

On May 2, Olympiad chairman and UCCS professor Alexander Soifer will review solutions to the problems and present awards at a ceremony that will start at 1:45 p.m. in Berger Hall.

Students have a chance to win medals, scholarships to UCCS and prizes provided by sponsors such as Wolfram Research, Mu Alpha Theta and Springer Publishing.

The Olympiad is the largest essay-type mathematical competition in the United States.

Participation is free and open to all students in grades 6-12.
