Noetic Learning Math Contest

More than 23,500 students from 526 schools nationwide participated in the NLMC contest last fall. MathAltitude was among the first three schools in Massachusetts to offer the NLMC in November 2013 and continues this tradition ever since. The number of young math enthusiasts taking part in the contest grew significantly and we expect even greater attendance this year. 

What is the Noetic Learning Math Contest?

  • The Noetic Learning Math Contest is a math challenge for the elementary school students.
  • The goal of the competition is to encourage young students' interest in math, to develop their problem solving skills, and to inspire them to excel in math.
  • In this contest students are given 45 minutes to solve 20 problems that cover a broad range of mathematical skills.
  • More information is available at

The next Noetic Learning Math Contest will take place at MathAltitude on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 5:00 P.M.

Registration for the competition and the workshops will start in October 2018.

You can register for NLMC competition and workshops on our website. The workshops will be held on Fridays, October 5, 19, and 26 from 6:30 to 8:00 P.M. Fee: contest $5.00 (free for MathAltitude students), workshops $25 per session ($5 for MathAltitude students).

A child does not need to be a MathAltitude student to participate. We invite our students in grades 2 through 6 and all their friends to challenge their mathematical curiosity with this contest. While there are a fair amount of math contests available for high school students, there are not that many held for elementary school students. The NLMC can be the first great step in discovering mathematics.
