Math Olympics

Your high-achieving math students can glorify God through their abilities beyond the classroom. At this event, students’ math abilities are stimulated and their achievements are recognized.

The Math Olympics is a series of timed tests that are given in a series of rounds. Each student competes against other students in his or her grade and category. The areas of competition include arithmetic computation and mathematical reasoning. Students in Grades 3–8 from ACSI member schools may participate. Each school may register a maximum of 3 students per category per grade (max. 36 students). 

NEW for 2020-21: All ACSI Student Activities events will be conducted remotely, including the Math Olympics. All participating schools will facilitate the testing of their own students on their own campus, grade their students' tests, and email the scores using the provided Tabulation Form to the Chairperson for final review and to determine the award winners. The Submissions Deadline for fees and tabulation forms is March 12, 2021. Please note that there are no qualifying Math-by-Mail events this school year. 

Categories

  • Arithmetic Computation: Paper/pencil computational problems such as fundamental operations. 
  • Mathematical Reasoning: Paper/pencil problems that are more difficult than the daily mathematical assignments of the student's grade level, such as story problems, patterns, and puzzles. Problems involve more than one operation and/or concept and may require a high level of reasoning.

Adjudication & Awards

Rosette ribbons are awarded to the top five places in each grade level and category. The 1st place student in each grade level and category with a score of 85% or higher is awarded an Olympic-style medallion. 

Registration & Fees

  • School Registration Fee: $60 by October 31, 2020 ($90 after deadline)
  • Student Participation Fee: $10 per entry by March 12, 2021 ($15 after deadline)
