More Information

The Department of Mathematical Sciences of Worcester Polytechnic Institute, in keeping with its commitment to K – 12 outreach and education, has for nearly 30 years brought bright, interested high school students to campus for innovative and exciting mathematical competitions. In doing so, the university helps high school teachers throughout New England motivate their students to excel by exposing them to new research in math and its applications.

On October 20, 90 public and private schools from New England will participate in WPI's 28th Annual Invitational Mathematics Meet, bringing roughly 360 students with their advisors to campus. Students and teams will compete against each other by completing a series of increasingly difficult math problems, which they must answer within a set amount of time to score points. The winners will receive more than $100,000 in individual and team scholarships to WPI. The first-place winner of the individual student competition will receive a $3,000 scholarship and a plaque; the second- and third-place winners will receive $2,000 and $1,500 scholarships, respectively. Each of the remaining schools' top scorers will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship, while the top nine team competition winners will receive WPI scholarships of up to $1,000 per team member.

The individual student competition will take place from 8:45 to 9:30 a.m., and the team competition occurs from 9:50 to 10:35 a.m.

Several members of the WPI Department of Mathematical Sciences will take part in the schedule of events - including a welcome from department head Luca Capogna and John Goulet, a WPI math professor and director of the Math Meet. Dean of Arts and Sciences Karen Oates will also address students. High school advisors will hear from a WPI graduate student in mathematics. The event will conclude with an awards ceremony which is scheduled to begin at approximately 12:45 p.m.

The following schools are scheduled to participate in the 28th Annual Invitational Mathematics Meet.
