Prior to the contest
Add your student names to your team prior to the contest. All participant names have to be submitted before the Roster Deadline. To add student names to your team: log on to your account and then add your student names in 'Enter Student Names Here:' section.
Send Parent Letter Home: It is important to have parents' support for the contest. Their encouragement and recognition will help students enjoy the contest and help us to convey the message 'It is COOL to be good at math!' to students.
Collect Parent Permission Slip: We will need a parent permission slip to publish student names and scores on our website. We don't need you to return the permission slip, but please collect them and keep them on file.
Prepare for the Contest: Contest problems are somewhat different than word problems students usually see. To help your students become familiar with the contest format and problems, please host a practice session prior to the contest and let your students work out past contest problems. If you don't have time for a practice session, at least make copies for students to study and practice at home.
Download the contest paper and make copies: The contest (problems and keys) will be posted in the password-protected section of our site 3 days prior to the contest date. Simply log on to http://www.noetic-learning.com/mathcontest using your email and password. If there is any problem downloading the contest, please contact us as soon as possible.
The test is NOT an online test. It is in paper-and-pencil format. Therefore, you need to download the contest paper and make copies for your students prior to the contest date.
During the contest
After the contest
Medals will be mailed to schools 2-3 weeks after the results are available. To ensure you receive your medals, double check your address in 'Your Account' information page. If you paid by Purchase Order, make sure your school sends the payment check as soon as possible. We will not send the medals until the actual payment is received.
Other than medals, we also have a digital 'Participation Certificate', 'Team Winner Certificate' and 'National Honor Roll Certificate' available for you to download and distribute.
Schedule a time for the reward ceremony. It is time to celebrate!
