This year we fielded three teams in the MOEMS Division M contest: Grade 7 Team A and Grade 4-6 Teams B and C. In January, our teams competed in the third meet with fantastic success:

  • Team A scored 33 points (114 points overall)
  • Team B scored 41 points (129 points overall)
  • Team C scored 37 points (114 points overall)

Individually, students averaged 3.66 out of 5, compared to 2.28 national average! Here are the averages by grade on our team compared with the national averages (the difference is shown in parenthesis):

  • Grade <= 6: 3.00 vs 2.21 (+0.79)
  • Grade 7: 2.65 vs 2.32 (+0.33)

Congratulations to (Bella L), (John X*), Samuel H*, Gus M, (William W), and Jason P who earned perfect scores! (Students in parentheses are in 5th grade or younger, which is amazing!!). The students with * next to their name have so far earned perfect scores on all three of our MOEMS-M meets. They could possibly earn the highest MOEMS award – The George Lenchner’s Medal.

MOEMS-E Meet 3 Results

39 students earn perfect scores, and an additional 37 students score 4 out of 5!

This year we fielded five teams in the MOEMS Division E contest: two combined Level 4 and Level 5 Teams, a Level 3 Team, and two combined Levels 1 and 2 Teams. In January, our teams competed in the third meet, and did amazingly well:

  • One of our combined level 4 and 5 teams earned a perfect score of 50 points
  • Our other combined level 4 and 5 team scored 46/50
  • Our level 3 team scored 42/50
  • Our combined level 1 and 2 teams scored 42 and 40 points, respectively

Individually, students averaged 3.59 out of 5, compared to 1.79 national average! With that national average, this test was incredibly difficult this time around. Typically, the average is more around 2.0 points. It’s even more impressive that we had 39 perfect scores (nearly 30% of our students), and half of our students got 4 or more points. Here are the averages by grade on our team compared with the national averages (the difference is shown in parenthesis):

  • Grade <= 4: 3.44 vs 1.37 (+2.07 — a huge differential!)
  • Grade 5: 3.62 vs 1.86 (+1.76)
  • Grade 6: 3.82 vs 2.22 (+1.60)

We are so proud of our students!!

CONTEST RESULTS 2018-2019

Learning and practicing analytical reasoning skills goes a long way towards the success in math contests. Even more importantly, when people do what they love, they usually do it quite well. And so, our students are very good when it comes to math competitions.

In 2018-2019, our teams finished among the best in Illinois, Midwest Region, and Nationally in a number of contests. Two of our students were Math Kangaroo National Champions; five students were National Champions and three students were Midwest Regional Champions in the CML contest; two students earned the George Lenchner Medal, 12 students earned Gold Pin and 33 students earned Silver Pin in the MOEMS contest; our student made Distinguished Honor Roll in AMC-8 contest, 9 students made Honor Roll in AMC-8 or AMC-10 contests, and 7 made Achievement Roll; many students made various other Honor Rolls and earned other individual awards.
