OIMT Information




The Oregon Invitational Mathematics Tournament (OIMT) will be hosted at Portland State University (PSU) on Saturday, May 25, 2013.  


The OIMT is a statewide competition for top regional scoring high school math students.  Participants of the Tournament come from all over the state to compete.   
The OIMT has been held annually by the math departments of Oregon State University, University of Oregon, and Portland State University (and in previous years Willamette University) for past 33 years. 


Format of the Tournament

High school students from across the state will compete in one of four categories: Geometry, Algebra II, Open I (Pre-Calculus), and Open II (Calculus). 
The competition will consist of a three hour personal testing period in the morning and an assigned group poster project in the afternoon. 
Groups for the Project Posters will be chosen for students by the PSU tournament committee, and students will be given their group placement at registration check-in the morning of the Tournament.
