High School Math Competition - 2019
Every year, Georgia Tech welcomes students who compete at the Georgia Tech High School Math Competition. Accompanied by teachers, coaches, and parents, the participants represent high schools from around Georgia and nearby states. Around 40 volunteers from among the Georgia Tech faculty, staff and students helped with registration, proctoring, and grading.
Thanks to the hard work of everyone involved, the High School Mathematics competition was a huge success. In 2018, over 250 students from 37 high schools competed in this annual Georgia Tech tradition, dating back to 1958. This year, the 2019 competition challenged over 300 students from 43 high schools to complete the competition’s four exams in such topics as algebra, geometry, combinatorics, number theory, and basic calculus.
The top 59 students from the free response exam were invited to take part in a proofs exam during the afternoon in order to determine the individual winners.
