    Registration is now open for Ohio Mathematics Contest

    Saturday, April 18, 2020

    Building 4, Sinclair Community College
    Dayton, OH 45402

    The Ohio Mathematics Contest (
    OMC) will be held on April 18, at the Building 4, Sinclair Community College. The check-in will begin at 12:30 pm with tests at 2:00 pm. Please allow some extra time for parking if you are new to the Sinclair Community College campus.

    The OMC is open to all students of grades 4th through 11th. Please register online at

    As you may be aware of, the Mathematical skills form a backbone knowledge on pursuing careers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The purpose of the OMC is to stimulate interests in mathematics among upper elementary, middle and high school students and to recognize those who exhibit exceptional talents in Mathematical skills. To enrich these students of highly talented in Mathematics, as well as to enlightening their parents’ knowledge and interests, we have been offering seminars, workshops and/or demonstrations related to the STEM fields.

    Please feel free to contact Mrs. SangHee Strobel (

    Soliciting for Speakers at Ohio Mathematics Contest

    While stuents take the test from 2:00 pm, their parents/teachers are free until students finish their exams (at 3:00 pm for grades 4 through 8, and at 3:30 pm for grades 9 through 11). After taking exms, students, parents and teachers will wait until the Award Ceremony at 5:00 pm when we score students’ answers, record their scores and determine winners.

    During this period, we need highly motivated volunteers to give (1)  a 50-minite presentation to the parents between 2:00 pm – 2:50 pm and (2)  a couple of presentations to lower-grade students between 3:05 and 3:35 pm. All students with their families will go into Smith Auditorium in Building 12 (around 4:00 pm) to listen to an-hour presentation, followed by the culminating Awards Ceremony. The Contest will be ended around 6:00 pm.

    You may choose any topic as long as it will promote parents’ knowledges and interests to guide their children to go into STEM fields and promote students’ enthusiasm in learning Mathematics. The time duration would be about 30 minutes (or shorter) for lower-grade students and 50 minutes for their parents.

    If you are interested in giving talks, please email to Dr. Munsup Seoh at
    mseoh@siscom.net and also feel free to contact him if you have any questions.
