As in years prior, we will have two Math Clubs at Union Middle School for 2019-20. On September 17th at 3 pm in the cafeteria, all students interested in participating in one of our two math clubs will take a one hour placement test. The 25 top scoring students on this test will have the option to participate in a competition based Math Challenge Team led by Mrs. Shaw in room 10. All other students will participate in a Math Challenge Club led by Mrs. D’Apuzzo in room 41. Both clubs will focus on an array of activities in advanced problem solving skills. The curriculum for the program focuses originates from “Math Counts,” a nationwide math competition for middle and high school students, as well as American Mathematics Competition, Santa Clara Valley Math Association Field Day, and Math Olympiad for the Math Challenge Team. More information regarding Math Counts can be found at www.mathcounts.org. The Math Challenge Team led by Mrs. Shaw will compete in local and state math competitions, face-to-face with other schools. We are very proud of all of our “mathletes.”
