Math Olympiads

Math Olympiads

 

What is it?  

A math enrichment opportunity for students interested in mathematics in grades 4 and 5. The students work together on problem solving strategies, do practice problems, and then complete individual competitions once a month.  


Program Goals:

  • To stimulate enthusiasm and a love for Mathematics

  • To introduce important Mathematical concepts

  • To teach major strategies for problem solving

  • To develop Mathematical flexibility in solving problems

  • To strengthen Mathematical intuition

  • To foster Mathematical creativity and ingenuity

  • To provide for the satisfaction, joy, and thrill of meeting challenges


Who should sign up?  

Any student in grade 4 or 5 who would like an extra challenge in math is encouraged to join.  Attendance is required at all meetings.  Check your calendar to see if the times and dates work.
 

Is Math Olympiad Right For My Child?  

Math Olympiad is a fast paced opportunity designed for children who enjoy and need challenging material.  This program is designed for the highly skilled problem solver.  Math Olympiad Team members are children who are very accurate with numbers, not just math facts, but numbers related to problems requiring critical thinking skills. Questions on the tests can present a very difficult challenge. If your child not only enjoys math, but also likes to investigate math related problems on his/her own, then you might want to consider Math Olympiad.  Furthermore, as a Math Olympian, your child will have a chance to win team/individual awards!  

Below are some sample questions from a previous Math Olympiad Test.  Have your child try them out.  If he/she feels successful, then Math Olympiads might be the right opportunity for him/her!  (Parents please try not to help with this sheet. Students will receive guidance and strategies at practice sessions, but cannot be helped by an adult on the competition dates.)

When is it?  

Math Olympiads will meet about twice a month on Friday mornings from 7:35-8:20 a.m in the Normandale Cafeteria (November-March).  One date is a practice and the other is a competition date.
