Jr. High Math Olympiad Club at High Point



Can you do this math problem over winter break?

A palindrome reads the same forwards and backwards. The number 2017102 is a 7-digit palindrome. Let A represent the least palindrome greater than 2017102. Let B represent the greatest palindrome less than 2017102. Find A – B.

High Point Academy (HPA) Math Olympiad students do five problems like this in thirty minutes! For fun.

The Math Olympiad is a nationwide contest for students seeking challenges in mathematics. Mrs. Gangl started coaching the High Point team this year. “Some of the problems are really hard,” she said. Indeed only 26% of all students answered the first question correctly on the most recent test. However, some of our students have been able to answer 4 out of 5 questions correctly.

This is an exciting start for a new program.
