Individual Round

The individual round contains problems on Algebra, Number Theory, Geometry, Combinatorics, and Computer Science. 

Relay Round

Teams will work to solve sets of problems where each team member works on one problem of the set and passes their answer to the next team member, who will use that answer to solve their own problem, like a relay! No other communication is allowed. You don't have to wait for the person before you to finish before you start working on your problem. Only the last team member's submission will be graded.

Guts Round

Teams will work together to solve sets of problems. After completing one set, the next problem set will be given. Teams cannot return to edit answers from a previous set.

Special Guest: Po Shen-Loh

Right after the opening ceremony, Po Shen-Loh will be providing a talk. Parents and coaches are encouraged to stay after the opening ceremony and attend. The title and topic of the talk can be found on the right.
