Nathan Miller, a sophomore at Perry High School (PHS), recently competed in the Ohio High School Mathematics Invitational Olympiad (OHMIO) on March 30 at Capital University. The OHMIO rewards mathematical excellence and encourages team work, challenging students individually, in teams and in a ciphering format. To qualify for OHMIO, students must receive a top score from Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics (OCTM) tournaments. Miller, who received a top score at the OCTM’s tournament at The University of Akron in
February, is Perry Local Schools’ only qualifier in the district’s history for the OHMIO. Typically, around 100 students from the state of Ohio are invited to participate. Miller qualified
for the invitational this year and his freshman year, as well. The OHMIO consists of a full day of competition beginning with a one-hour individual test that covers all high school math topics, including calculus. After lunch, the competitors compete in an eight-round ciphering contest. Success requires a broad knowledge of mathematics and lightning-fast computation. The competition concludes with a team competition, where four students from four different schools compete as a team, testing student skills in both strategy and cooperation. (more…)
