Noetic Learning Math Contest and workshops

35,384 students from 754 schools nationwide participated in the NLMC contest last spring. MathAltitude was among the first three schools in Massachusetts to offer the NLMC in November 2013 and has continued this tradition ever since. The number of young math enthusiasts taking part in the contest has grown 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 school students in grades 2 - 8.
  • 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 (50 minutes for online version) to solve 20 problems that cover a broad range of mathematical skills.
  • More information is available at

We invite our students in grades 2 through 8 and all their friends to challenge their mathematical curiosity with this contest. While there are a fair number of math contests available for high school students, there are not that many held for elementary and middle school students. The NLMC can be the first great step in discovering mathematics.
