MOEMS (Math Olympiads for Elementary and Middle Schools, Inc.) is an international program that offers math problem solving contests for teams in grades 4 through 8 designed to enrich, excite, and energize students and stimulate a love for mathematics. I am excited for this new adventure to grow students in this joy of learning and create a thrill of meeting challenges.
The program is a year-round program with monthly tests that occur November through March. Covenant currently has one elementary team of 4th-6th graders, which meets weekly from October to the end of March to be coached through problem solving strategies and skills using prior tests and published “problems of the month” each week.
Participation in this is optional, but like other before and after school activities comes with a program fee of $100 each semester.
