3rd Annual Math Contest

Collaboration with Raritan Valley Math Group

About RVMG:

Raritan Valley Math Group(RVMG) is an informally organized, volunteer-led group whose purpose is to deepen mathematical understanding and problem solving in middle and high school aged students. RVMG explore areas of math that are beyond the typical scope of the public school sequence. Students are a mix of public schooled, private schooled, and homeschooled. Most reside in Morris, Union, Somerset, or Mercer County in New Jersey.

RVMG is coached by Simon Lee, a former math competitor, who placed third in Canada in the Euclid Competition Fifth in the Canadian Mathematical Olympiad, and top 100 in the Putnam Competition. He studied pure math as an undergraduate at the University of Waterloo and also as a graduate student at Columbia University. Administrative duties for our group are handled by two parents, Sharon Lee and Amy Marinovic. A subset of exceptional RVMG students form the Raritan Valley Math Team (RVMT). RVMT competes in regional and national mathematics competitions including the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament (HMMT), the Princeton University Mathematics Competition (PUMaC), Purple Comet Math Meet, and the American Regions Mathematics League (ARML).
