Math Club is open to all fourth to eighth graders. Students should have a strong understanding of the four operations and be comfortable solving challenging non-routine problems.
The club will meet from September 15th to June 1st. There is no cost to join nor any fees for the competitions.
The fourth to sixth grade meetings, 3:45-4:30 on Fridays are structured around preparing for Mathematical Olympiads for Elementary and Middle Schools. More information about MOEMS is at www.moems.org.
The fifth to eighth grade meetings, Fridays 4:30-5:15, are more general math challenges.
