We have heard from you that MATH/ STEM-related enrichment is high on the wish list; We heard from you that your student is enthusiastic about Math, Math puzzles, Math problems and Applied Math scenario analysis - so here at Leota PTSA is excited to offer you with all of these opportunities.

The Math Olympiad Club program is a free school-wide math enrichment program for middle school students, consisting of a series of challenging and interesting math problems provided to you. The purpose of this program is to engage and challenge students to solve interesting math problems, strengthening their math fundamentals, critical thinking and problem-solving skills - improving their confidence along the way.

What can you expect: We send emails about Math problems, News about Math, Share Math Articles and of course share information on upcoming Math Olympiads.

These opportunities cover problem-solving strategies such as drawing a picture or model, making an organized list, looking for patterns, working backward, and guessing and checking.  We are thankful to the North Creek High School Mu Alpha Theta Chapter (Math Honor Society) students for mentoring the Leota Math Olympiad Club.

Preparation classes, formats and materials

Please see here for preparation classes that are happening every Wednesday 3pm - 4pm. We also have posted formats, past questions, and other details about each competition at the same place.



Q: Am I enrolled in all Math Olympiads by being a part of this email

A: No. You have to individually register for each Olympiad/ Math tournament separately. We will communicate all details and you can chose which one you would like to attend.

Q: Do the math challenges follow common core?
A: Not necessarily. The boundaries are limitless ??

A: Each Math Challenge paper contains question sets that apply to all grades - increasing in difficulty from the first question to the last question (you can expect up to 10 questions). Each student can be challenged to do more than required.

Q: Can parents help my student with the problems?
A: This is intended to get kids excited about math - if working thru problems with them, gets them excited and confident about math, GO FOR IT! This can definitely be a FAMILY project to work on and discuss these math challenges!!

Q: Can we form buddies and solve problems

A: This is all about having fun while stimulating your brain with like minded kids. If you have buddies who would like to join you in this puzzle solving – GO FOR IT.

Q: Do I get help if I don’t know how to solve these problems

A: We are working on hosting Math sessions where we can guide on how to solve these problems if you would like. Please look here for details.

Q: Am I graded

A: You are not graded in any way by being part of the program

Q: Do I have to participate in all the upcoming math Olympiads if I am part of the group.
