REGISTRATION FOR 2021-2022 IS open

Our tryouts are now open to students nationwide who will be in Grades 2 through 7 in the 2021-2022 school year (including homeschoolers). We also accept some very advanced rising first graders.

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE TRYOUTS

Classes will meet weekly for 60 minutes, September through May. We plan to offer at each level at least one in-person class in our Oak Brook facilities and several virtual classes, so students will be able to find the time suitable to their schedule and time zone. Whether zooming or rooming with your teacher, students will join a community where Math is FUN. Recent surveys among parents of our current students shows a 50-50 split between families who prefer virtual vs in-person classes next year. See In-Person vs Virtual Classes for more information.

Tuition is expected to be $500 per child for the whole year and includes contest participation fees and all other expense. A discount is offered to families with multiple students in the program and for students who are enrolled in multiple classes. All money is used to cover the program costs. If any amount is left over at the end of the year, it is used to offset costs for the next year. We do our best to make the program affordable to everyone while retaining the best teachers and teacher assistants.

Please, share information about our program with any other parents of eligible children you know. We are trying to reach as many kids as we can!

MOEMS-M Penultimate Meet Results

3 students earn perfect scores; 14 students score 4 out of 5!

In February, our teams competed in the penultimate meet of the MOEMS-M competition. This was another difficult test but our teams persevered. Our Team A (students in Grades 7-8) has 180 points out of 200 – fifteen more than the best our teams ever had at this point – and is all but guaranteed the Highest Team Achievement Award. Team B (students in Grades 5-6) has 145 points and is one step away from earning the Meritorious Team Achievement Award for top 6th grade teams.

Individually, students averaged 2.7 out of 5, compared to 2.0 national average! Congratulations to Amanda S, David C, and Henry C who earned perfect scores in this difficult test!

David C and Henry C earned perfect scores in all 4 meets and are one step away from the most prestigious George Lenchner Medal!!!
