The Math Club for students in Grades 6 to 9 (5th Graders with special invitation) meets every two weeks on Fridays, 6:30 - 8:00 P.M. starting October 4th. Students are taught new concepts and techniques, with an emphasis on solving outside-the-box problems found in math competitions.
Students of all abilities are welcome; the only requirements are an interest in mathematics, a desire to be challenged, and the commitment to attend the club sessions. Space is limited, and only open to MathAltitude students. Enrollment in the club is $10 for the school year.
Students in the club will compete in 5 Continental Math League (CML) contests during the year. Each month from November to March, we will take a half hour during a normal club meeting to participate in a six-question contest. Top scorers on these contests will be recognized at the end of the year at a special Pizza Party/Awards Night for math club participants. We hope to expose the students to a wide variety of problem types, which will be helpful preparation for any competition they might (and are encouraged to!) take during the year, including the Noetic Learning Math Contest and AMC-8 in the fall, and the Math Kangaroo in the spring.
