Math Club is open to any and all 7th and 8th graders. It takes place once a week after school from 3-3:45. In the beginning of the year, several high schools host junior high math competitions so our initial focus is to prepare to compete by using old competition material in a team trivia setting. After competitions, we come to testing season! Math Club provides an opportunity to take a deeper look at some of the skills that show up on Aspire Testing for the 7th graders and on entrance exams/placement tests for the 8th graders. In the Spring, we try to fit an in-house competition between our Math Club members to finish the year with some fun.
Math Club is moderated by Mrs. Caitlin Sammon.
Our goal is to encourage strong math skills by providing opportunities for children to engage in logical reasoning and critical thinking. Students should be prepared to “burn their brains” and get excited about math!
