Math Team is open to all 4th and 5th graders with any interest in learning how to solve interesting math problems.
Our Math Team members have a long tradition of competing in Math Olympiad contests. This year, in addition to participating in the 5 Math Olympiad contests (beginning in November and ending in March) our team will also participate in Math Kangaroo.
Team practices will begin September 18th, at 7:25am, and will happen most Friday mornings through mid-March.
Team practices are led by parent volunteer coaches. This year, the lead coach for 4th grade will be Ratnakar Palle and the lead coach for 5th grade will be Misty Davies. Coaches will review short lessons on creative problem solving techniques. The Mathletes will work in small groups and have the opportunity to share their strategies for solving problems. The goals for the Mathletes are to develop and improve their Mathematical skills in solving problems, to have fun through the weekly sessions, take home problems, and contest participation, that they may experience the satisfaction, joy, and thrill of meeting challenges.
Official signup will occur through LGS Recreation. All parents need to contribute by taking on a team job. If you are interested, please fill out our form here.
