The Noetic Learning Math Contest (NLMC) is a semiannual problem-solving competition for elementary and middle school students. The goal of the competition is to encourage students to be interested in math, to develop their problem-solving skills, and to inspire them to excel in this subject area. During the contest, students have 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 intended for students in grades 2–8. Teachers in any public school or private school are encouraged to register their students. (Registration fee is $39.) 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. The top 10 percent of teams (excluding afterschool institution teams and homeschool teams) will receive Team Achievement Plaques.
Deadlines: March 15, 2019, for registration; April 4–18, 2019, for contests. Schools or districts may host their own tournaments on a flexible schedule; see website for details.
