Contest to Inspire Students to Excel in Mathematics
The Noetic Learning Math Contest is a semiannual problem-solving competition for elementary and middle school students. The goal of the competition is to encourage students’ interest in math, to develop their problem-solving skills, and to inspire students to excel in math. During the contest, students are given 45 minutes to solve 20 problems. Many of the problems are designed to challenge students and to enrich their problem-solving experiences. The contest is for students in grades 2–8. Teachers in any public or private school are encouraged to register their students. The spring 2020 contest will take place from April 9 to 23 at students’ schools. The top 10 percent of all participants in each grade will receive National Honor Roll medals. The highest scorer of each team will receive a Team Winner medal. And the top 10 percent of teams (excluding afterschool institution teams and homeschool teams) will receive Team Achievement Plaques.
Deadlines: March 20, 2020, regular registration; April 2, 2020, late registration

For many years, mathematicians, scientists, engineers, and others interested in mathematics have played “year games” via email and online. It may not always be possible to write expressions for all the numbers from 1 to 100 using only the digits in the current year, but it is fun to try to see how many students can find. This year may prove to be a challenge.
