CML Grade 4-5 Meet 2 Results

Four 4th grade teams in 1st place nationally; two 5th grade teams in 1st place in the Midwest Region!

69 students earned perfect scores!

This year, we split our students into 8 teams of 20-25 students to give more students a chance to contribute to team scores, even though it makes it more difficult for each team to win against other schools that often enter just one large team. All of our teams also compete it the more difficult Pythagorean Division, and they did so well!

All five of our Grade 4 teams scored perfect scores! There are eleven teams tied for 1st place nationally, and four of them are ours! Being only one point away from a perfect total score, our other Grade 4 team is right behind them.

Two of our Grade 5 teams are tied for 1st place in the Midwest Region and 7th place nationally, and the third Grade 5 team is just 1 point behind them.

Individually, on the Grade 4 Team, (Aadi H)*, Aarya D, Aayush C*, Abigail S, (Abram B-M), Agastya V, Aidan G*, Akhil V*, Alexander P*, (Anaamika W), Aria T, Aryanna L*, (Ashwin C), Chase C, Chloe H, (Conrad B), Daniel W, Derek W, (Ella G)*, (Ethan L), Ethan P*, Finn G*, Hanson J*, (Holden B), Ian H, (Isabelle W)*, James L-C, Jinu K, (Jonah A)*, Jonathan Y, Julian S*, Juliet P*, (Kai B), Katie L*, Kayla S*, Kevin G, Kira T, (Kyle Z), Luke Z*, Matthew T, Michael J*, Milo G, Nathaniel G, Nathaniel Z, Nayan M*, Nicolas V*, Nishil M, Patrick S, (Rohan S), Rohan S*, Shayan P, Shivaj R, Steven J*, Thea P, Velika V*, Victoria Z, (Vihaan K), Viyan S, (Wesley B)*, (Zachary C), and (Ziqi Z)* earned perfect scores and led their teams!

MOEMS-M Meet 2 Results

11 students earn perfect scores; 13 students score 4 out of 5!

In December, our students competed in the second meet of the MOEMS Division M contest with great success. This year we fielded two teams. Students are placed on a team based on the first letter of their first name, so that the teams are roughly the same in strength.

Usually, the expected score after two meets for the teams on target for the top team award is about 80-84 points out of 100 possible maximum. After two meets, the team standings are as follows:

  • Team A-Ja scored 88 points.
  • Team Jo-Z scored 95 points.

Both of our teams are on track for top team awards in their age groups!

Individually, students averaged 3.05 out of 5, compared to 1.23 national average! That low of a national average means that this was an incredibly challenging contest. Our students in Grade 5 and younger did exceptionally well, scoring over 3.26 points above the national average!! Here are the averages by grade on our team compared with the national averages (the difference is shown in parenthesis):

  • Grade <= 5: 3.82 vs 0.57 (+3.26)
  • Grade 6: 2.55 vs 1.03 (+1.52)
  • Grade 7: 3.13 vs 1.21 (+1.92)

All of our students who earned perfect scores in this meet also earned perfect scores in the last meet, which is phenomenal! These students are Charlotte O, Isaac C-O, (James B), (James L-C) [on a school team], (James S), John P, (John X), Leo S, (Rich L), (Zimo L), and (Ziqi Z).

All students in parentheses are in 5th grade or younger, which is amazing!!

MOEMS-E Meet 2 Results

38 students earn perfect scores; 53 students score 4 out of 5!

In December, our students competed in the second meet of the MOEMS Division E contest with great success. This year we fielded seven teams: four Grade 2-4 teams, two Grade 5 teams, and one Grade 6 team. Students within each grade group are placed on a team based on the first letter of their first name, so that the teams are roughly the same in strength.

Usually, the expected score after two meets for the teams on target for the top team award is about 80-84 points out of 100 possible maximum, while for the teams on target for the top team award among Grade 4 teams is about 70 points. After two meets, the team standings are as follows:

  • Grade 6 Team earned 90 points.
  • Grade 5 Team A-L earned 89 points.
  • Grade 5 Team M-Z earned 93 points.
  • Grade 2-4 Team A-Ce earned 78 points
  • Grade 2-4 Team Ch-E earned 78 points.
  • Grade 2-4 Team J-Ni earned 82 points.
  • Grade 2-4 Team No-Z earned 82 points.

All our teams are on track for top team awards in their age groups!

Individually, students averaged 3.05 out of 5, compared to 1.68 national average! That shows that this was an incredibly challenging contest for all students, and our students still scored an average 1.37 points higher than the national average. Here are the averages by grade on our team compared with the national averages (the difference is shown in parenthesis):

  • Grade <= 3: 2.46 vs 1.33 (+1.13)
  • Grade 4: 2.91 vs 1.38 (+1.53)
