Does your child love math and problem-solving? Would they like “hanging out” and having fun with other math-loving kids? Then become a mathlete and join the Math Olympiad team! This team will push and challenge your child while participating in fun math challenges and competitions!
Your school’s Math Olympiad Team is an in-person, after-school math competition team for students in 4th through 6th grade. Training sessions will be held in-person, one day per week (TBD) from 3:00-4:00 pm on our school campus. This program will last from September to April. Students on the Math Olympiad Team will have the opportunity to participate in up to four math competitions, including MOEMS, Mathzilla!, United We Math and Math Field Day, depending on contest and local rules amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We will transition to a virtual program if health regulations necessitate the switch.
This year we have space for a maximum of 25 students per team (75 total, 4th through 6th grade). If your child is interested, please add them to the interest list by 9/7/21
. Once the Interest List closes on 9/7/21, students will be placed on teams based on district-wide criteria (see below). Interest List Sign-Up does not guarantee a place on the team. Based on the number of students interested, a waitlist may be formed. Once teams have been formed, students and parents will be notified by the end of day on 9/9/21 with instructions for how to register and process donations. Class will start the week of September 13th, pending final decisions regarding our teacher coach team.
Every student is welcome to express interest in one of the 25 spots on the team! Team selections are prioritized in the following way:
- Participation in the LCUSD GATE program
- 2018-2019 mathematics CAASPP scores for 6th graders
- 2020-2021 mathematics grades for 4th-6th graders
Please note that Math Olympiad is not a math remediation course or a child-care option. Although this is a recreational after-school activity, Math Olympiad will be an enjoyable experience to students who possess strong math skills and enthusiasm for problem-solving. For those who secure a spot on the team, we then ask for a donation of $300 for the season (September to April).
This donation covers teacher preparation, instruction, MOEMS program fees, snacks, and awards. Donations are non-refundable once Math Olympiad season starts.
