Colorado Mathematical Olympiad:
The first ten years and further explorations

by Alexander Soifer

There are many types of mathematical competitions throughout the world. Some expect participants to merely state answers, others are multiple choice competitions. Some competitions are oral, and completed in a matter of a couple of hours. Others go on for a week or weeks. Over the past 100 years throughout the world the word "Olympiad " came to mean the particular type of competition where complete essays are expected for every problem and an adequate time is offered to participants.

The First Colorado Springs Mathematical Olympiad took place on April 27, 1984. The Colorado Mathematical Olympiad is the largest essay-type mathematical competition in the United States, with 600 to 1,000 participants competing annually for prizes. This book contains the problems and complete solutions for the first ten years of this competition.
