Math Olympiads News

Several students from Greenbrook Elementary School were among the nearly 150,000 students worldwide to participate this year in the Math Olympiad program.  They participated in a series of five monthly contest of 5 problems each, from November to March, and weekly practice sessions under the supervision and coaching of Mrs. Anna Bantug.  She taught the children to solve unusual and difficult problems and to think creatively.

The students responded well and were recognized with certificates for their participation.  Eight students of the Mathletes won national awards for excellence within division E for grades 4 – 5.

  • The silver pin is awarded to those in the 90th to 97th percentiles including Layla Shihab.
  • The embroidered felt patch is awarded to those in the top 50% of all the participants worldwide, including the following students: Layla Shihab, Joshua Choi, Benjamin Ding, Lindsay Delanoy, Dipti Gupta, Tera Chen, Spencer Kropp and Reece Zaitz.
  • The trophy is awarded to the top scorer of the team - Layla Shihab.

Each year the Math Olympiads serves over 100,000 students on over 5,000 teams nationally and about 50,000 students on 1000 teams in more than 30 other countries.  Since 1979, it has provided challenging, thought-provoking problems that stretch the abilities of students in grades 4 through 8, strengthening their foundation for both assessment tests and more advance studies.  Our children have responded to the challenge with eagerness and enthusiasm.  Congratulations to all the participants of Greenbrook Math Olympiads, school principal Mrs. Rhea Murphy and coach Mrs. Anna Bantug.
