After school enrichment for 4th and 5th graders
Lexington Home and School Club is pleased to offer Math Olympiads (Math O) to 4th and 5th grade students who want to learn about problem-solving, real-world math applications, and to explore and have fun with math concepts.
Math Olympiads is a large and popular mathematics competition designed to expose students to elementary methods of mathematical problem-solving. The Lexington Math Olympiads team will explore mathematical topics (area, volume, number theory, fractions, probability and more) in the context of “non-routine” math problems. Once a month, from late November to March, students will participate in a challenging thirty-minute, five-problem contest provided by the Math Olympiads Foundation. Contests are held at the individual schools and scored by Math Olympiads Foundation. Over 170,000 students from 6,000 teams participate worldwide.

Math O is an engaging six-month commitment. Before applying for enrollment, please discuss the program with your child and gauge their interest. Math Olympiads is an enrichment program and is not meant to be used as a remedial or intervention class. It can be a truly rewarding experience if students are motivated from within. Participants who are not engaged and following class rules will be asked to leave the program.
