Hello Odyssey 7-8 families:
Paul Sullivan has organized an after-school math club at Commodore for the past several years. This year our 7th and 8th graders will be meeting on Fridays from 3 to 4 pm, and our first meeting will be on Friday, October 14th, in Paul’s room.
The purpose of this math club is to help students prepare for a variety of math-related contests including Math Is Cool, AMC 8, MathCounts, and the Math Olympiad. Students practice problem-solving strategies, explore math challenges, and learn additional topics. Students compete in teams for some contests, and as individuals in other contests. We usually meet each week until the Math Olympiad in May (hosted here at Commodore). Families take turns bringing snacks to fuel our “mathletes” and the kids bring their focus and interest — and we have fun!
If your student would like to join math club, please let Ken Perry and/or Bill McCoy know, we will be helping Paul as parent co-coordinators this year.
Bill and Ken
