Math Olympics (Grades 3-8)

What are the Math Olympics?

  • Enlightium Academy (Enlightium) is partnering with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) to provide students in grades 3–8 the opportunity to compete with their peers from around the nation. 
  • Students will join a remote session with an Enlightium math teacher and test their abilities in either Computation or Mathematical Reasoning. 
  • Participation in the Math Olympics fulfills the Student Social Activity requirement 
    • To fulfill this requirement, a student must participate in both of the following events:
      • October 21, 2020: Live Practice Session for Try-Out Test
      • October 23-25, 2020: Round 1 Try-Out Test - students are provided a take-home test and have the weekend to complete it

Math Olympics Fulfill the Student Social Opportunity

  • Participation in the Math Olympics counts as fulfilling the Student Social Opportunity
  • Late registration is not available for Math Olympics
  • Each student who registers for a social event receives a $5 gift card; max one $5 gift card per student. Students who meet attendance and participation requirements are entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card at the end of the year.
  • Attendance requirements are dependent on when a student enrolled in Enlightium Academy
    • Quarter 1 enrollment - students must participate in at least the first two events
    • Quarter 2, 3, and 4 enrollment - students do not have the option to participate in Math Olympics

Academic Prerequisites

To register for the Math Olympics, a student must: 

  • Have at least a B or higher in their math course



Technical Requirements

To register for the Math Olympics, a student must: 

  1. Be able to use Zoom.us on their computer; PCs and Macs tend to work well with Zoom.us 
  2. Have an external webcam, not a webcam that is built into the computer. The testing teacher will need to monitor the student and Enlightium teachers found that students who use an external webcam were better able to do so 
    1. You can find an example of an external webcam here
  3. Be able to print the testing sheets ahead of testing days; Enlightium teachers found that there were fewer issues when students wrote their answers on an official test sheet than by scrap paper.

Testing Days Requirements

Testing days:

  • September 14-18, 2020: Student Social Week 
  • October 21, 2020: Live Practice Session for Try-Out Test
  • October 23-25, 2020: Round 1 Try-Out Test - students are provided a take-home test and have the weekend to complete it
  • January 18-27, 2021: Live Practice for Round 2 Test
  • January 28-29, 2021: Round 2
  • Late February/Early March 2021: Round 3

On the testing days, students will need: 

  1. A computer to access the tests 
  2. Paper and pencil 
  3. An adult (typically a parent or guardian) to ensure honest behavior 
    1. ACSI requires two adults to monitor the student during test-taking; this is fulfilled through an Enlightium teacher and the adult present with the student 
  4. A method to turn in the solutions. This can be done either by a scanner or by taking a picture with your phone. 
    1. After the test, the solutions must be emailed to the testing teacher.
