Sign-ups for the Loring School Math Club typically go home in early October. It is open to all students in Grades 4 and 5 who are especially interested in and motivated by Mathematics. The club activities will not be specifically linked to the regular curriculum, nor will they provide any individual instruction or extra help.
Part of the club program will involve practice and participation in the Math Olympiad, a national, five-problem test, held five times per year on various mathematical topics. The competition will take place during our Math Club sessions, and it provides a challenging and enriching experience for students beyond what they might have in a regular classroom. The academic level of the competition component is estimated to be Grade 6. Beyond the competition, however, there will be activities that are purely for enrichment and fun, facilitated by the classroom teachers in charge.
