Welcome to our 44th year of competition. This will be a challenging and unpredictable year for us all. Many years of experience in the classroom has shown that solving problems is the best way to teach and learn mathematics. MOEMS® (the Mathematical Olympiads for Elementary and Middle Schools ) is built upon this foundation.
PICO stands for Person In Charge of Olympiads. That’s you – the person who will devote time, effort, and energy regularly to help your Math Olympians grow as problem solvers. We salute your commitment to help your students “be all that they can be” and extend our best wishes for an exciting, enjoyable, and mathematically worthwhile year
To help you become aware of some details of MOEMS® and to help you prepare your students for the contests, HERE ARE THREE BASIC POINTS TO START:
Record these dates on your calendar now.
3. CONTESTS: The printable form of all contests will be posted to our website approximately one week before the beginning date of the contest window. You will recieve an email reminder at that time. In addition we will send an email notice to OnLine teams which includes a link to the OnLine document which your team will use with the testing platform. For a more detailed description of test PREPARATION for our contests, refer to our rulebook. Keep the contest questions secure until you give the Olympiad, keep the answers secure until you collect the student papers, and wait until the first practice following the contest to share our solutions to the problems. IMPORTANT! These are copyrighted materials. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES may the actual contests or the individual problems and/or solutions be published in any form, including the internet.
