Entering its 43rd year, the Mathematical Olympiads for Elementary and Middle School (MOEMS) is a 501(c)3 providing opportunities for children to engage in creative problems solving activities while developing a child’s ability to reason, be logical, and be resourceful.
Their goals for MOEMS participants include:

  1. developing enthusiasm for problem solving and mathematics,
  2. deepening the understanding of mathematical concepts and strengthen ability to use the concepts,
  3. consider concepts that they might not otherwise encounter,
  4. enriching experiences in intellectually stimulating and significant mental activities, and
  5. building a stronger foundation for assessments and for future mathematics studies.
