Contest to Inspire Students to Excel in Mathematics
The Noetic Learning Math Contest is a semiannual problem-solving competition 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 students to excel in math. During the contest, students are given 45 minutes to solve 20 problems. Many of the problems are designed to challenge students and to enrich their problem-solving experiences. The contest is for students in grades 2–8. Teachers in any public or private school are encouraged to register their students. The spring 2020 contest will take place from April 9 to 23 at students’ schools. The top 10 percent of all participants in each grade will receive National Honor Roll medals. The highest scorer of each team will receive a Team Winner medal. And the top 10 percent of teams (excluding afterschool institution teams and homeschool teams) will receive Team Achievement Plaques.
Deadlines: March 20, 2020, regular registration; April 2, 2020, late registration

When teachers sign up for the Online Math League (OML), their students gain access to practice materials designed to immediately challenge and motivate them to excel in math. Three times throughout the school year, students compete in challenging math contests against other students from around the world.
