Empowering Students to Impact the World since 1970

ACSI Math Olympics

     This year’s ACSI Math Olympics was hosted at Eagle's Landing Christian Academy on Friday, March 10, 2017. Students in grades 3-8 are eligible to participate in the ACSI Math Olympics. Each school enters three students to compete in the area of computation and three students in the reasoning category from each grade.  In order to qualify for the Math Olympics, students took two timed grade-level tests in the areas of Arithmetic Computation and Mathematical Reasoning. The scores from these tests along with the students’ math grades were used to determine which students qualified for the Olympics. 
The objectives of the ACSI Math Olympics are as follows:
        to stimulate an interest in mathematics
        to recognize the achievements of students in mathematics
        to provide an opportunity to meet and fellowship with other
           mathematics-oriented students
        to offer students an opportunity to glorify God in the use of
           their mathematical abilities beyond the classroom
     The ACSI Math Olympics is a series of timed tests or rounds. All students took four tests with each test lasting 11 minutes. There were a total of eight schools that participated in the Olympics.
