Follow the mathematical adventures of eight of the nation's brightest young women as they write outposts chronicling their preparations for, and participation in, the 2012 China Girls Mathematical Olympiad (CGMO).

With a proof-based format similar to the International Math Olympiad, the CGMO began in 2002 as a regional competition for teams of female students from China and other Asian countries. Invited to participate in 2007, the U.S. has medaled at CGMO ever since. In fact, every member of every U.S. team in the past four years has come home with individual honors.

Funding for this U.S. CGMO project is provided by IBM Research - Almaden, Akamai Foundation, Mathematical Association of America, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Sunlin and Priscilla Chou Foundation, and Science Workshop.
