Students in 4th though 6th grade Gifted and Talented recently participated in the Noetic Learning Math Contest (NLMC). The NLMC is one of the largest math contests in the United States for elementary and middle school students. Every year, more than 30,000 students across the country participate in the contest to compete against each other. The goal of the NLMC is to develop students’ problem-solving skills so that they will become better thinkers and they will be better prepared for advanced STEM studies.
During the test, students applied their problem-solving skills and math concepts learned in the classroom to solve twenty creative math problems independently. Each grade competed as a team and one student in each grade level earned a Team Winner medal. In addition, the top 10% of students in the nation earn the National Honor Roll medals (we had one honor roll winner in 4th grade) and the top 50% of students in the nation earn the Honorable Mention ribbons. 29 students won honorable mentions. Congratulations on this wonderful achievement.
