In November, our teams competed in the first meet of the MOEMS Division E contest with a great success. This year we fielded four teams, one for each class. Each team has 11 or 12 students. Since MOEMS team score is the sum of top ten student scores, this gives each student an opportunity to contribute to the team score.
Our team scores after the first meet are:
- Level 2: 29 points
- Level 3A: 40 points
- Level 3B: 38 points
- Level 4: 50 points
Individually, 20 out of our 54 students earned perfect scores. That includes all Level 4 students and seven Level 3 students. Another 13 students earned 4 out of 5.
Our students beat the national average by more than a full point! Here are the averages by grade on our team compared with the national averages (the difference is shown in parenthesis):
- Grade 3: 2.6 vs 1.6 (+1.0)
- Grade 4: 2.9 vs 2.1 (+0.8)
- Grade 5: 3.9 vs 2.7 (+1.2)
- Grade 6: 4.9 vs 3.0 (+1.9)
