MOEMS - Math Olympics!

moems-logoMathematical 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.vThese consist of five non-routine problems. The location of each contest might change, but will usually be held at either the Fayetteville Public Library or Washington Elementary School.

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.

The Fayetteville Math Circle will offer weekly training sessions on Wednesday from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Fayetteville Public Library. See for more information.
