Math Competition Club (or MC2) is a before-school advanced math program intended to get kids excited about learning math and prepare them for success in the many popular math competitions done at school like the CML, VML, AMC-8, and Math Counts. Students who do well in these competitions are recognized and given medals at the school’s year-end awards ceremony, and 6th graders in the program may be eligible to represent Kent Gardens in the annual Math Counts competition held in February.
The program is intended for students in grades 4-6 who have a strong interest in math. We plan to have two groups: the “Archimedeans” (advanced) who will meet on Monday/Wednesday mornings, and the “Pythagoreans” (intermediate) who will meet on Tuesday/Thursday mornings. A math placement test will be conducted before classes begin to confirm that the student is in the appropriate group, and in some cases, students may be reassigned. Classes will run from October through March (approx. 42 sessions). The cost is $720 per student. We ask that families pay the entire amount up front and make a full-year commitment to MC2 in order to ensure the viability of the program for the entire math competition season and give all students the best chance to succeed.
