At 4Schoolers, we strongly believe that participating in math competitions is a great opportunity to explore and boost your interest in mathematics. Participating in math olympiads provides a variety of benefits that will not only allow students to perform at the highest level on college entry level exams like the SAT and ACT, but will provide a skill set that improves problem solving skills, enhances creativity and prepares students to better deal with failure and success as well as better handle pressure.
High-level math Olympiads require students to not only solve a problem but also to explain and prove solutions for correctness. In addition, students will hone time-management and self-assessment skills. During math contests, it is crucial to keep track of time and assess your abilities in order not to waste time on tasks that you are not prepared for.
Participating in math contests will allow students to master mathematics, and understand the concepts on a deep level, which results in exceptional performances in advanced math classes at school as well as standardized tests. Many of 4Schoolers' students who took competitive math classes dramatically improved their SAT Tests scores in math.
