The Noetic Learning Math Contest (NLMC) is a semiannual problem-solving contest for elementary and middle school students. Separate contests are written for each grade 2-8. This is a nice contest for 1st time contest takers, so much so, that we give the 2nd grade contest to 1st graders as well. NOTE: This contest does challenge experienced contest participant and builds their confidence as scores run higher. This contest tends to have a number of problems that are particularly friendly to those who think visually (understand, they can change their contest at any time).
The goal of the competition is to encourage students' interest in math, to develop their problem-solving skills, and to inspire them to excel in math.
During the contest, students are given 45 minutes to solve 20 problems. Many problems are designed to challenge students and to enrich their problem-solving experiences.
Awards: NNVMath awards for meet winners at the MathRocks! contest following each meet. Recognition by Noetic Learning:
• National Honor Roll Medal: The top 10% of all participants in each grade will receive 'National Honor Roll' medals.
• Team Winner Medal: The highest scorer of each grade will receive a 'Team Winner' medal.
