High School Activities

Georgia Tech High School Mathematics Competition


Since 1958, Georgia Tech's School of Math  has invited high school students to compete both on individual and team events for pride and prizes. After a hiatus, the competition was revitalized in 2004, and in recent years  300 to 400 students have attended the events every Spring at the Institute's campus in midtown Atlanta.  The competition's exams cover algebra, geometry, combinatorics, number theory, and basic calculus.  

Volunteers from the School of Math's student body, faculty, and staff welcome the participants to campus, run the event, and present the top students in the competition with scholarships to attend Georgia Tech.  Overall, this event brings the Institute and local high schools together for a day of mathematics and fun. See the School's annual publication ProofReader for the list of winners, pictures, and more information about the competition in recent years.
