If your students are in grades 5 and 6 in Southern Maine, you can join the Southern Maine Elementary Math League!
There are teams of 6 competing students, along with 6 alternates who participate. Over 30 teams compete at The Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland 3 times a year, and then once at The Portland Expo Center near the end of the school year.
Students are challenged with an independent Geometry and Arithmetic test and also a team round where all 6 students work together to earn up to 36 points.
All tests and team work are scored and tabulated. The top 3 teams in 5th and 6th grades win a trophy and the individual scores can win a ribbon for places 1st through 5th.
For more information, or to register your school's team, check out the Southern Maine Elementary Math League.

Happy competing, Mathematicians!
