Calling All Mathematicians in Grade 2-8!
The Noetic Learning Math Contest (NLMC) is a semiannual problem-solving contest for elementary and middle school students. The goal of the competition is to encourage students’ interest in math, to develop their problem-solving skills, and to inspire them to excel in math. During the contest, students are given 45 minutes to solve 20 problems. Many problems are designed to challenge students and to enrich their problem-solving experiences. Participants are eligible to win individual and team awards.
We will be holding optional practice sessions for the NLMC in the Maple Dale Library from 3:45-4:45 on the following days:
Tuesday, January 29 - Come try the problems before you sign up!
Tuesday, March 12
Tuesday, April 2
This year’s contest will be held on Tuesday, April 16, from 3:45 – 4:45 p.m. in the Maple Dale Library. Students who wish to participate must complete the Google document linked here by noon on February 8. Once students have expressed interest by filling out the Google Doc, they will receive practice contest questions via email. You may also want to look at the Noetic Learning Math contest website.
