# Are you smarter than a 5th grader? Let's find out!

This set is my first complete set which contains of really cool problems all of which are authentically sourced from grade-5 National Mathematics Talent contest which is an annual event in South India. Most of the questions are quite simple ones, only involving a bit of logic and deep rooted understanding of concepts.But, what shocked me was these questions were presented to 5th grade children, who astonishingly solved most of them. I'm sure that this set is going to be a treat to level 1 and 2 members. Level 3+ members can enjoy this and use it for simple practice. I am hopeful that this set would be liked by all.

If you liked this set- Don't forget to share, like and follow me. :D

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
• Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

@Krishna Ar, great job buddy! Come to think of it, do you remember a show named 'Kya aap panchvi paas se tez hain?' (Are you smarter than a Fifth-Grade passed student?) aired on Zee TV somewhere around 2008 & hosted by Shah Rukh Khan?

@Ameya Salankar - I guess the channel was STAR PLUS. And well it was a bit scripted.

But I think it was Zee TV? Anyway... it was a good show. Did you ever watch it?

Rather than saying "Are you smarter than a fifth grader?" you should say "Are you smarter than a fifth grader who is mathematically gifted". Nonetheless these are cool problems :) I bet I am smarter than most fifth graders.
