Letter to parents:

During this school year 2018-2019 as in many previous years, SchoolPlus will be participating in the MOEMS. Participating in Math Olympiads is an integral part of the SchoolPlus Mathematics Program. Of course, it is a competition, and some kids will be winners and some will not. But we strongly believe that every kid will benefit by being exposed to these clever and challenging problems.

The highlights for students are the five monthly contests, given from November to March. There are two appropriate divisions (Elementary school 4-6 and Middle school 6-8).
Each contest consists of five non-routine problems with a time limit of 30 minutes for the entire contest. A student scores 1 point for each correct answer. Thus, a student may score up to 25 points during the year. After each contest, results are submitted to MOEMS for scorekeeping. The Olympiad Committee collects the results and keeps a cumulative score for each participant.
We encourage every one student to take part in Olympiad considering concepts offered students might not otherwise encounter. There is no easy road to becoming a capable problem solver. The more time and effort invested, the more one is likely to learn.
This should be viewed as a challenge and an opportunity to grow. Learning how to solve a problem and to understand its underlying mathematical concepts are the most important goals of mathematics education.
