The schedule for the 2020 Math Hour will be announced in February.
Problems, results, and photos from the 2019 Math Hour Olympiad are available here.
Each spring, Seattle-area middle- and junior high-school students are invited to participate in the Monthly Math Hour on the University of Washington's campus. The Monthly Math Hour at the UW is a series of talks that will take place from 1-2pm on Sunday afternoons to introduce students to the beautiful and exciting world of mathematics. The lectures are given completely free of charge. The talks will be held in Savery Hall, room 260.
Well-behaved parents and teachers are also welcome to attend with the permission of their children. Siblings are free to join in, too.
There will be time for questions and further discussion after the talks.

Math questions from an art museum
We will look at three works of art by Sol Lewitt, Maurits Cornelis Escher and Carlo Crivelli and use them to explore mathematical questions in the fields of combinatorics, complex analysis, and Euclidean geometry.

The game of SET: finding patterns in differences
SET is a card game where the goal is to find collections of three cards where each of features (color, shape, number, and shading) are all the same or all different. This simple game surprisingly leads to lots of interesting mathematics, including a question which remains unsolved!
