Math Olympiads (Grades 4–5)

Mathletes will work together to explore a math topic or strategy in depth. They will investigate unique and different challenging problems. They will talk about math patterns and problem solving. Mathletes will try new and different problems every week — some will be geometric, some will be logic, and some will be numeric. Once per month, mathletes will get to participate in contests that will be taken during our regular meeting time. You can explore more about this program at MEOMS.org.
