What is MOEMS?
Created by Dr. George Lenchner, an internationally known math educator, the Math Olympiads went public in 1979 and is one of the most influential and fun-filled math competition programs in the United States and throughout the world, with over 120,000 students from every state and 39 participating countries. Math Olympiad includes problem solving contests that stimulate enthusiasm and a love for Mathematics in students while introducing them to important math concepts and strategies of problem solving.

Who can participate?
Math Olympiad is open to students in grades 4 through 8 (for Chadbourne it is up to 5th grade). Only schools, home schools and institutes can register students, NOT INDIVIDUALS.
Math Olympiad Divisions and Contests
MOEMS offers two age appropriate divisions to choose from. Students in grades 4 through 6 will participate in the Elementary Division (Division E) while the Middle School Division (Division M) is open only to grades 6 through 8.
MOEMS publishes five monthly contests for each division from November through March.
Registration is for teams. Each team may have up to 35 students.
Contests consist of five non routine problems that must be completed in 30 minutes during each monthly contest
Students work alone, scoring 1 point for each correct answer
STUDENT SCORE (0 – 25) is the number of problems answered correctly after all the 5 contests
TEAM SCORE (0-250) is the sum of the ten highest student scores, taken after the fifth contest
