Fall Noetics Competition

November saw our first competition of the year and what a success!

Math League

The fifth and final competition of the year is Math League. We will participate in this contest in mid-May

Winter Math Olympiad, Elementary Division for Grades 4-6

The Mathematical Olympiad begins in November and runs through March.  Each month students in grades 4-6 have thirty minutes to solve five questions.  They all take the same contest paper.  Typically, the students participating in the contest are advanced students in schools, TAG programs, and after-school institutes such as the Portland Math Academy; consequently, a top ranking in the contest is outstanding considering the level of competition. The final contest paper had over 30,000 elementary students in grades 4-6, and 340 exceptional students in grades 1-3 all competing against one another.

Math Kangaroo

The fourth competition of the year was the largest math competition in the world, but not the most popular in the US, yet.  This year the Math Kangaroo was hosted on the Intel campus in Hillsboro for Oregon students.  The awards ceremony will be held on Monday, May 20th and the results will be posted on their website the next day.


ASA Statistical Poster Competition

The American Statistical Association sponsors an annual Poster Competiton and this year five of my members from the Ridgewood club participated.  

Julien did an amazing job on his science festival project for the Ridgewood Science Festival and was able to use the data he collected to prepare the graphs and poster presentation.  Olivia and Ava designed an analysed a questionnaire to see if there was a relationship between fourth grade students' favorite colors and favorite classes.  Claire and Dihzinlik designed, conducted, and analyzed an experiment examining the relationship between parachute surface area and time of descent. 

In all, three posters were submitted and the regional results are in:
     Dihzinlik and Claire - 3rd Place (Grade K-3 Division)
     Julien         - Honorable Mention (Grade 4-6 Division)


These two posters will be judged with the other regional placers for the National Competition.  Good luck!!!
