## Montlake Math Challenge |
---|

Welcome to the Montlake Math Challenge! The Montlake Math Challenge is an after school program for 4th and 5th grade students who love math and would like to extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the standard school curriculum. The goal of the program is to present math as a fun and challenging activity. The focus will be 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 at hand, and put some effort into homework. The program is neither a free extended day service, nor it is intended to help with the regular school math homework. We ask that only motivated students ready for an extra challenge join.

** Meeting Times: ** Tuesdays, 2:50-3:50

** Location: ** Room 9 (Mr. Schultz' classroom)

** First Day of Class: ** October 1, 2013

** Instructors: ** Mikaela Hertel, Alexa Rust

** Contact Information: ** aerust [at] u [dot] washington [dot] edu
