The 14th annual Shoreline Math Olympiad will be held on Saturday, March 10 from 8:30am to 2:30pm at Shoreline Community College. The competition is for students in grades four through eight. 

More than 760 students have already registered to participate in the Math Olympiad this year.

Several Shoreline schools use parents to work in small groups with students to have individually appropriate math problems that challenge each grade level. Several 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 Shoreline School District teams and area private schools for competition, and some students will also participate in the Washington State Math Championships held in Blaine.
