||Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program (MOSP)
||The Mathematical Association of America; American Mathematical Competitions
||The Math Olympiad Program was created when the United States began participating in the International Mathematical Olympiad in 1974. The goals of the Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program (MOSP) include providing a mathematics program for about 25 very promising students who have risen to the top on the American Mathematics Competitions. The rigorous curriculum and daily schedule of the MOSP is designed to achieve the goals of the program. The MOSP will give students extensive practice in solving mathematical problems which require deeper analysis than those solved by students in even the best American high schools. Full days of classes and extensive problem sets gives students thorough preparation in several important areas of mathematics which are traditionally emphasized more in other countries than in the United States.
