SSEF Math Madness Tournament
Each April, Sandy Springs Education Force hosts a Math Olympiad, one of three tournaments in Georgia for the International Math Olympiads for Elementary and Middle Schools. The objectives of MOEMS® are to teach multiple strategies for out-of-the-box problem solving, develop mathematical flexibility in solving those problems and foster mathematical creativity and ingenuity. Teams of fourth, fifth and sixth graders from public schools in Sandy Springs prepare throughout the year and compete at the Olympiad on a Saturday. SSEF covers all costs for this program; families and schools participate for free.
