Math competitions

  1. May 12, 2014 #1
    So I live in silicon valley and I was wondering what mathematics competitions are there? The ones that are nearby and that are only for high school students. I need to have at least 4 nearby competitions for my math club because I want the members participating a lot.

    Go to a math circle or two and talk to them, or check their web sites. The major ones in Silicon Valley are San Jose, Stanford, and Berkeley. I've already pointed you at good sources for competition information. Have you actually looked at any of them? What have you found?

    You are not going to get anywhere in this unless you are willing to put in some effort.

    Yes I looked into SMT and BMT but those are pretty much the only ones that I can find.

    I don't know if you are just looking at purely team based ones in the local area but why not just set up a training program for your team for the USAMO/IMO, unless you already have.
