Math Olympiad 2018-19

For 4th and 5th graders at Brewer Island Elementary for Academic Year 2018-2019

 

Hi 4th and 5th grade families. 

Brewer Island is happy to announce that we will offer the Math Olympiad program for the 3rd year.  What is Math Olympiad?  In short, it’s a fun way for kids to challenge their logistical and mathematical thinking.  There’s a lot more to it, and you can read about all the benefits at http://www.moems.org/program.htm

There are a series of 5 tests that are designed to pull you out of your comfort zone and exercise those thinking muscles.  Each test has only 5 questions, and lasts only 30 minutes.  After our last exam we will have a potluck dinner to celebrate the year.

 

What is it?

  • It's a Math Team
  • For grades 4 - 5
  • Up to 35 students per team

 

Why do it?

  • Math is FUN
  • Learn new Math concepts
  • Improve problem solving
  • Foster creativity and ingenuity
  • Feel the thrill of overcoming challenges

 

Who is our Leader? 

 

There will be no formal meet ups to prepare for the exams, but families have the option of getting together outside of school and hosting their own study sessions.  If you are a parent who would like to lead some study groups, please contact Trupti or Shipa and she will supply you with a list of students who are participating.

 

Trupti Gowda and Shilpa Dogra volunteered to organize the Math Olympiad contest for 2018-2019 School Year, They will be Person In Charge of the Olympiads (PICOs). These PICOs would help coordinate/organize the Math Olympiad for the academic year 2018-2019.
