TutorTeddy & Statlance survey shows Math Olympiad, MATHCOUNTS and similar contests build rare arithmetic and model building skills, and Tutorteddy is announcing upcoming Math Olympiad contests in New England.

In a recent survey conducted by TutorTeddy and Statlance shows that students, who actively take part in different math competitions in elementary and middle school levels, are more likely to do better

in high schools and colleges. The research also shows that about 50 to 80 years back elementary schools used to be the land of word problems and arithmetic. But in recent days, some curricula give kids less chance to learn time and distance, ratios, proportions, and techniques of counting using arithmetic. Instead, they directly jump into algebra based mathematics, sometimes missing the fun and intuitions of arithmetic. The survey's result clearly indicate that some American kids are learning 'a function is where there is unique y for each x' effectively which can be enhanced by proper understanding about proportion, linearity or non-linearity using MATHCOUNTS, Math Olympiads, and Math Kangaroo. This helps them in model building to solve real-life problems before they can apply algebra.

In the study, Tutorteddy Statistics Help and Statlance, found that Math Olympiad, MATHCOUNTS, and Math Kangaroo are three competitions where kids enjoy the fun of taking challenges of solving word problems that their ancestors or great great grand fathers and mothers took for granted.

In a sincere effort to expand that fun, TutorTeddy Statistics & Probability help ( ), is announcing the famous 35th Math Olympiad to be held at Nashua, NH public library. Here are the dates,
