Young mathematicians from across the state participated in the 37th Annual Oregon Invitational Math Tournament (OIMT) at Oregon State University's College of Science on Saturday, May 13, 2017. The OIMT has been hosted annually by the Departments of Mathematics at Oregon State University, University of Oregon, and Portland State University (and in previous years, Willamette University) for the past 37 years.
Students are invited to the Tournament based upon their performances at regional mathematics competitions held at community colleges throughout the state. Exceptional scores on the AMC-10 and AMC-12 exams may also earn them an invitation.
Coordinators Raven Dean and Katy Williams in the Department of Mathematics, along with the help of numerous mathematics faculty and graduate students, made the event a resounding success.
The statewide competition for top regional scoring high school math students included a 60-90 minute written exam and a team problem-solving competition.
