Materials: Math Olympiads Contest (Division M), MathCounts Contest including Sprint round, Target round, Team round, and Countdown round. Math League Contest including Regular and Algebra contest. Five official contests of Math Olympiads program Division M

The class is dedicated to bringing challenging mathematics materials to students. The goal is to encourage student’s interest and confidence in mathematics through solving contest problems. The main focus will builds student’s problem-solving/techniques skills; promotes logical thinking and sharpens students' analytical abilities through multiple-choice questions/competition problems in restricted times. Problem-solving strategies/techniques will be teaching during the class such as looking for a pattern, drawing a diagram, making an organized list and so on. Questions may cover: basic topics, plus exponents, fractions, reciprocals, decimals, rates, ratios, percents, angle measurement, perimeter, area, circumference, basic roots, patterns, sequences, integers, triangles and right triangles, and other topics.

Our school will participate Math Olympiads program from Mathematical Olympiads for Elementary and Middle Schools, MOEMS®, Division E (up to grade 6) and M (up to grade 8) starting Fall 2016. Certificates will issue to all students, one Highest Individual Scorer will get a trophy, and awards for about 50% of all participating students.
