Hi, Maggie

the OMAPA (Paraguayan Math Olympics) had 41.000 children from 2 to 6th grade participating. There two levels 2-4th, and 5th to 6th grade. They take tests at the school level, then at city level and then at national level (3 exams) in April, June and August. They give away materials for teachers and this year they were able to start a nation-wide Math teacher training. At the high school level, school champions get invited to a Young Talents program, where they receive special Math training on saturdays thoughout the year.  These youths also collaborate in the elementary level competitions.

 

it's a great program  :)

 

Veronica
