3rd-5th Graders Take Top Honors in National Math Contest

Presenting the Noetic Learning Math Contest National Honor Roll!

Teams of students in grades 3-5 from all Linn-Mar elementary and intermediate buildings participated in the Noetic Learning Math Contest this fall during their LEO Math Strength groups. 

The Noetic Learning Math Contest (NLMC) is a semiannual problem-solving contest for elementary and middle school students in grades 2-8. Students from across the United States participate in this contest every semester. 

The goal of the contest is to develop students’ problem-solving skills, encourage their interest in math, and inspire them to excel in math. During the contest, students are given 45 minutes to solve 20 problems. 

The Linn-Mar students listed below were recognized on the Noetic Contest National Honor Roll for their achievement in the Noetic Math Contest. These students scored in the top 10% of all participants at their grade level.
