As homeschoolers grow in numbers, more and more competitions are opening up to include homeschoolers. Some are even creating events for homeschoolers.
Noetic Learning Math Contest has created a Homeschool Division and a contest for homeschoolers. All homeschool students from grades 2 to 5 are welcome to apply and compete.
The tests will be administered by a homeschool educator and will consist of 20 problem solving questions. Students will be competing on a national level with the top ten cores in each grade level being recognized on the Noetic Learning’s web site.
All the questions in this competition will be grade-appropriate and will not require any special math concepts beyond what is typically learned for each grade level. Some of the problems, however, will require advanced problem solving skills.
The registration deadline is October 20th, 2009 and you can find out more information at http://www.noetic-learning.com/mathcontest/homeschool.jsp.
This would be a great opportunity for those children that are very math oriented.
