2015-16 Awards Ceremony


Below is a table of eligibility for all grade levels. These eligibility requirements are mandated by the testing organization, and not our school. The grade levels refer to the student's grade in their primary school, not the math level they are studying a RSM-MetroWest.



Attendance Policy

Math Competition Prep classes (MCP) are very popular, and we have many more students who would like to attend. Therefore we must be very strict in our attendance policy.

While the classes are a free benefit to our students, we do request a level of commitment.

All students signed up for our Math Competition Training Teams must commit to attendance in their assigned class.

Therefore, to be as fair as possible, any student who misses two consecutive training classes (without prior approval) or a total of three classes per semester will have to be removed from the class and the seat given to another student on the waiting list.


These classes are also available only to students whose account is paid-to-date. Failure to pay SmartTuiiton invoices in a timely manner will result in withdrawal from the MCP class.


Thank you for your understanding.

MCP make-up classes for MCP A and MCP D will be held on Friday, April 28th make up for MCP B will be held on Saturday, April 29th.

See this 2015 New York Times article on The Importance of Recreational Mathematics!


We strongly believe in the positive charge which children receive while participating in any kind of competition, and even more so, winning in it. Be it a Puzzle of the month, or a state-wide, or even International competition, just taking part in any math competition promotes healthy self esteem, "excitement, enthusiasm and positive attitudes towards mathematics and stimulates interest in continuing the study of mathematics beyond the minimum required for high school graduation..." (a quote from AMC8 web site).

The purpose of competitions and the training that goes into preparing for them is manifold:

  • To stimulate enthusiasm and a love for Mathematics
  • To introduce important Mathematical concepts
  • To teach major strategies for problem solving
  • To develop Mathematical flexibility in solvinsg problems
  • To strengthen Mathematical intuition
  • To foster Mathematical creativity and ingenuity
  • To provide for the satisfaction, joy, and thrill of meeting challenges

( from the MOEMS web site)


Our Very Own Puzzle Contests

For several years now we have been running monthly our own Puzzle Contests for students of Metrowest School of Mathematics. Puzzles help train out-of-the-box thinking, and keep up interest in math. They frequently tie together many unrelated things children learn in the regular program, and most certainly they train logic.

Of course the real reason we offer them is that we just love them a lot ourselves!
