Math Club

The Math Club is a challenging club for 6th - 7th grade students with a high interest and above average ability in math. During meetings students work on problem solving skills and engage in interesting activities to develop a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts. Students participate in the Math Counts Club Program and are encouraged to participate in local math competitions.

Competitions also give students the opportunity to meet students from other schools who enjoy math.
