Sudbury Hosts Provincial Math Olympiad June 3 and 4, 2005

June 1, 2005 - Sudbury's Science North and Laurentian University were invaded by about 100 "Mathletes" from across the province last weekend. The Northern Ontario Mathematics Association (NOMA) hosted a provincial Mathematics Olympiad comprised of 25 teams of Grade 7 and 8 math students. Participating teams represented the top teams from over 15 provincial playdowns that were held over the past month throughout the 15 Chapters that make up the Ontario Association for Mathematics Education (OAME). Participants competed in several individual and team math challenges which included a Science North "Math Trial”. The event was sponsored by OAME, Union Gas, the Ontario Teachers Insurance Plan, Texas Instruments, Spectrum Educational Supplies, Thomson-Nelson Publishing and McGraw-Hill Ryerson as well as many local sponsors such as Inco, Laurentian University, Science North,
Laking Toyota, Staples, Copy Copy and Gougeon Insurance.

During the two-day Math Olympiad event, participants had the opportunity to visit Science North to view an Imax movie, ride the Virtual Voyage, and visit other area sites. The Northern Ontario Mathematics Association, (one of the 15 chapters of OAME), were represented by three local Sudbury school teams.
