Math Olympiad Program Description

 

Math Olympiad is a competition for elementary and middle schoolers that focuses on math problem solving skills. Rather than testing arithmetic and computational skills, the tests revolve around critical thinking and logical problem solving.
More details about Math Olympiad can be found at: http://www.moems.org


This program will teach students strategies and methods to solve problems on the test. It does not form a Math Olympiad team, but it prepares students for their school team. Every class, students will take one test, review the answers, learn new concepts/methods, and go over homework. We will follow the same format as the official Math Olympiad tests (5 problems in 25 minutes). Students should expect to receive around 30 minutes of homework every week. After every class, we will update parents on their student’s progress through email. Middle school students who are new to Math Olympiad can definitely benefit from this program, but our main focus is on the elementary division (4th-6th graders).
