About the Course

High School Competitive Math Club

Want to solve problems and learn strategies with other kids who love competitive math? Then welcome to the club! Through weekly meetings and asynchronous forum discussion, you’ll work with a small team of classmates to solve problems in an informal environment. CTY club coaches lead virtual synchronous meetings where you’ll get a chance to interact and learn as a team.

While this math club doesn’t replace any CTY courses, it’s a great way to meet like-minded students and explore challenging topics together.

A few notes about CTY High School Math Club:
This is not meant to replace or be considered a core piece of any course that CTY offers. While curricular content will be introduced, it is not at the quantity of a course, the focus is on giving students a chance to interact as a team rather than individual time working with a club advisor.

Meeting times
In this course, students are required to attend scheduled online meetings. These online meetings may be used to conduct class sessions, office hours, group work, or other instructional needs. Your instructor will communicate with you to schedule the first virtual class meeting and inform you of subsequent meeting days/times.

The class will meet 1 day each week, for 1 hour.

In the event you have a scheduling conflict, and cannot attend the synchronous meeting, contact your instructor prior to the meeting so that the recording can be shared with you. 

Time Commitment: 1.5 hours per week (1-hour club meeting, 30 minutes of independent work).
