February Contest Results

MOEMS Meet 4

This was the hardest meet of the year. In particular, the last problem was the hardest in recent memory: only 3% of students nationally solved it! Our team met the challenge successfully, as always. Here is the summary of our results. Note that the path to the top team awards usually requires the teams to have 150+ points after four meets.

  • Team A, made of students from grade 5, now stands at 168 out of 200 points.
  • Team B, made of students from grades 4 and below, now stands at 150 out of 200 points.
  • Our Level 3 Group, made mostly of the same students who took MOEMS last year, earned 173 points, 9 more than their score last year!
  • Last year, 10 of these students earned a Silver Pin (awarded to top 10% of competitors). This year, seven students already earned it with one meet to go and another 22 students still are within striking distance with good performance at the last meet.
  • The average cumulative score for our 5th graders is 15.5 out of 20, compared with 9.6 nationally.
  • The average cumulative score for our 4th graders is 12.6 out of 20, compared with 7.4 nationally.
  • The average cumulative score for our 3rd graders is 11.1 out of 20, compared with 5.6 nationally.
