MOEMS - Math Olympics!
Mathematical Olympiads for Elementary and Middle Schools (MOEMS) is an international, annual event with the goals of stimulating enthusiasm and fostering creativity in the field of Mathematics. According to MOEMS, last year nearly 170,000 students from 6,000 teams worldwide participated in the Math Olympiads. All 50 states and about 30 other countries were represented.
Over the course of November through March, a team of up to 35 students in grades 4 through 8 may participate in 5 monthly contests. These contests will be taken in the participating school and consist of five non-routine problems.
Points are scored by students individually working a problem correctly to earn a point to where a single student may score up to 25 points per year. While definitions for more complex problems are given, calculators are not permitted and many solutions include follow-up problems and activities. These contests will take place in the Fayetteville Public Library.
