2010 MEANT Math Olympiad

One November 13th we will not have Math Circle so our students can choose to compete in the Math Olympiad sponsored by the Malayalee Engineers Association of North Texas.  Here is a description from the MEANT web site and a link to their sign up form:

To encourage young America in learning Mathematics and Engineering, MEANT introduced the prestigious MEANT Math Olympiad.

The Malayalee Engineers Association of North Texas is sponsoring a math contest.  To support this initiative, Metroplex Math Circle will suspend its normal November 15th meeting allowing more students to participate.

When MEANT last held a contest one of their winners was a young Zach Abel.  Zach went on to great success at the USAMO and IMO as document in the movie Hard Problems.  Perhaps one of the participants in this year’s MEANT contest will follow in Zach’s footsteps.

We will update the following information as we receive it from MEANT.
