Math Club 2017-2018 School Year Schedule
Hello Kitchener students, and parents,
We are starting the math club again this year, with volunteers Shirley Yang, Joyce Cheung, Jean Kim, Jin Sang, and Daniel Gomez (UBC PhD of Mathematics Department). We would love to have more adult volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering, please contact Shirley at Shirley_w_xy@hotmail.com. Just like previous years, we want the club to be educational and fun, so our activities will include some combination of:
— Some practice and focus on the Mathematica Centrum tests (this year’s Centrum exam will occur on April 18).
— Some invited speakers on how math affects their jobs. They will bring interesting games!
— Some competitive games, examples from last year that include “Jeopardy”.
The Math club activities is back in the library. Math club activities will occur biweekly, every other Tuesday, starting Oct 10th, from 3:15-4:15pm. The tentative dates for math club are:
Oct 10th, Oct 24th, Nov 7th, Nov 21st, Dec 5th, Dec 19th,
Jan 9th 2018, Jan 23rd, Feb 6th, Feb 20th, Mar 6th, Apr 10th
We hope to have interested students join the math club – there are few pre-requisites to join the club, such as respect for your fellow students, a genuine interest in any aspects of math, and being in grades 4-7. If you want more information on the math club, feel free to contact Shirley.
Thank you, and have a great school year. Looking forward to seeing you at the library at 3:15pm on Tuesday, Oct 10th!
