He has published a widely used problem solving text (in Romanian), has numerous accolades in Math Competitions, including a Bronze Medal at the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), has been a coach of the Romanian IMO Team for 4 years, a Coordinator for the IMO for 3 years and has been a student or a teacher on more than 40 different Math Camps.
- We will have three different levels of difficulty running in parallel, ranging from middle-school math (Mathcounts, AMC 8 style), to AMC10, AMC12 level and all the way up to AIME and USAMO levels. The campers will be placed in groups according to their skill level, but they will have the possibility to move from one group to another.
- Our instructors will teach problem solving techniques curtailed to the level of the group. Additionally, the instructors will be using the state-of-the-art Art of Problem Solving books and materials in some of the classes.
