Montlake Math Challenge

Welcome to the Montlake Math Challenge! The MMC is an after school program for students who love math and want to expand their mathematical knowledge. The program's goal is to introduce students to exciting mathematical ideas that are not part of the standard curriculum. We will emphasize a hands-on learning environment in which students will explore new concepts in small groups.

Meeting Times: Tuesday, 3:30-4:30
Location: Room 9 (Mr. Schultz' classroom)
Instructors: Eric Nitardy, Katia Nepom
