From the monumental marvels of the ancient world to today's revolutionary technological advancements, one consistent thread binds humanity's accomplishments: mathematics. This ever-pervasive discipline is not just about numbers. It's about reasoning, problem-solving, and, most importantly, understanding the universe around us. In our mission to foster this understanding and nurture future trailblazers, 98thPercentile proudly introduces the S.M.A.R.T Math Olympiad for students across the USA for Grades 1 to 8 on November 25th and 26th 2023!
Unraveling the S.M.A.R.T Approach
The School Math And Reasoning Test (S.M.A.R.T) isn't merely an acronym; it's a philosophy. In an age where data is the new gold and algorithms dictate dynamics, the traditional method of rote learning falls short. Our initiative aims to combat this by emphasizing mathematical reasoning and data interpretation over memorization. In doing so, we wish to cultivate a deeper connection between students and math, allowing them to see its practical and awe-inspiring applications in daily life.

Why S.M.A.R.T Matters
In our rapidly changing world, it's not enough for students to understand formulas. They must also decipher when and how to apply them. The S.M.A.R.T Math Olympiad bridges this gap. By introducing students to real-world problems that challenge their conventional classroom learning, we help them develop an analytical mindset, pushing them to think outside the proverbial box.
The Real-world Relevance
Every sector, from healthcare to finance, from arts to engineering, relies on data-driven decisions. With the S.M.A.R.T Math Olympiad, we ensure our participants get a taste of this early on. By drawing parallels between Olympiad challenges and real-world scenarios, we aim for students to not only master mathematical concepts but also appreciate their significance in shaping the future.
Beyond the Olympiad: A Stepping Stone
While the S.M.A.R.T Math Olympiad is an event in itself, it's also a gateway. Participants are inherently preparing for over 20 national standard exams, making them versatile and better equipped to tackle diverse academic challenges in their future endeavors.
Building a Mathematical Community
Learning, while personal, is also communal. Through this Olympiad, students across the nation come together, united by their love for math and reasoning. They share strategies, discuss solutions, and in the process, build lasting friendships. Beyond students, the event also brings together educators and parents, creating a holistic ecosystem where every stakeholder contributes to the learning journey.
In Conclusion: A Vision for the Future
98thPercentile's S.M.A.R.T Math Olympiad is not just a competition. It's a movement. It embodies our vision of a world where every child sees math not as a subject to be feared, but as a tool to understand and shape the world. Through this initiative, we are taking a significant step toward that future, and we invite every student, parent, and educator to join us in this exciting journey.
