Montlake Math Challenge

Welcome to the Montlake Math Challenge, Fall 2012 Edition! The MMC is an after school program for students who love math and want to extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the standard school curriculum. The focus will be on hands-on exploration, discovery, discussions, and games based on mathematical ideas. Yet, the class is a serious endeavor. Students will be expected to have their brains working, keep their attention on the problem in hand, and put some effort into homework.

Meeting Times: Mondays, 3:10-4:00
Location: Room 9 (Mr. Schultz' classroom)
First Day of Class: October 8, 2012 Instructors: Reid Dale, Sam Hopkins, Alexa Rust
Contact Information: reiddale [at] u [dot] washington [dot] edu

If you would like to enroll your child in Montlake Math Challenge, return the registration form (second page of this flyer) to the office by October 2, 2012.
