Shoreline schools use parents or teachers to work in small groups with students to have individually appropriate math problems that challenge each grade level. Non-profit Math Olympiad groups create the problems.

Most programs start meeting in the fall and conclude at the competitions held in the spring. Most programs give homework to the “mathletes” during the week. Typically programs have a quiz day at the end of each month to give the kids a chance to use their skills to see how they stand amongst their peers.

The Shoreline Math Olympiad brings together all the District teams for competition, and some students will also participate in the Washington State Math Championships held in Blaine later in the spring.
