In early April, 40 second and third-graders from Lausanne competed in the Noetic Math Contest.
The Noetic Learning Math Contest (NLMC) is a semiannual problem-solving contest for elementary and middle school students. The goal of the competition is to encourage students' interest in math, to develop their problem-solving skills and to inspire them to excel in math. During the contest, students are given 45 minutes to solve 20 problems. Many problems are designed to challenge students and to enrich their problem-solving experiences.
The results came back a couple of weeks ago and two of our second-graders ranked in the top 10 percent of the nation of all second and third-graders who participated in the contest.
Violet Arthur '29 and Lucas Minnick '29 earned a spot on the National Honor Roll for Noetic Math.
Thursday, in the Lower School assembly, the students were recognized as well as the high scorer in both second and third grade (Violet Arthur and Roshail Jawwad) and others who participated and received Honorable Mention (top 50 percent).
The following students received Honorable Mention:
Second grade (Class of 2029) :
Third grade (Class of 2030) :
