"A pile of coins sits on a table. Sara takes half of the coins plus 4 more. Then Nick takes 2. Then Joe takes 2 more than half of what is left. Finally, Selena takes 5. Four coins remain on the table. How many coins were on the table to start with?"
“From a pile of coins containing nickels (N), dimes (D), and quarters (Q), Tom picked 10 coins with a total value of $1.00. The 10 coins had a different number of each of the three types and at least 1 coin of each type. How many coins of each type did he pick?”
Are any of your children advanced in math? Would they love to answer these types of questions? Are they in the 4th through 8th grade? If you answered yes, please consider signing them up for Math Olympiads.
Inspire will have Math Olympiads teams and be competing in competitions for the second year in a row. Stacey Munro and Barbara Bolanos will be coaching the two teams (grades 4-6 and grades 7-8). There will be a total of 10 meetings this year (5 practices and 5 competitions). Competitions are held monthly November - March and are administered by the teachers in charge in one location on a specified date. Students compete as individuals, and their results are then shared with the Math Olympiads organization. Individual and team awards are awarded each year in the spring.
Our first practice is on Friday, November 1. Here’s a flyer that contains information about how to learn more and get involved.
