Students place in the 10% of Mathematical Olympiads for Elementary and Middle Schools

Six University Liggett School students earned top honors in the Mathematical Olympiads for Elementary and Middle Schools (MOEMS®), including two who placed in the top 10%.

Fifth-graders Jack Ingle and Quentin Zhou both placed in the top 10%. Certificates of completion of this rigorous program were also given to ULS Lower School students Alison Harris, Elliot Duhaime, Graham Welsh, Jordin Jerks, Dot Nichols, Connor Curis, and Ameerah Davenport.

MOEMS® is a 501(c)3 established in 1979. It is one of the most influential and fun-filled math competition programs in the United States and throughout the world, with more than 120,000 students from every state and 39 countries participating. The objective of MOEMS® are to teach multiple strategies for out-of-the-box problem solving, develop mathematical flexibility in solving those problems and foster mathematical creativity and ingenuity. MOEMS® provides monthly problem-solving contests for elementary and middle school students from November through March.
