The Next Math Circle and All-State Math Team Selection

March 6, 2011

Middle School Math Circle

The next Middle School Math Circle will be on Saturday, April 16th at Hammond School from 9am to 12noon. We also plan on having one meeting in May and two in June, but the dates of those meetings have yet to be determined.

Some of the homework problems for the April 16th meeting can be found at the link below.

Homework Problems for April 16, 2011

The rest of the homework problems are from the book Competition Math for Middle School by Jason Batterson. If you attended the November, December, or January Math Circle and still have not received your book, contact me so that I can get it to you. If you have the book, you are to read sections 1.1-1.4 and do the accompanying problems for the next meeting. You can find an answer sheet to go along with the book here:



High School Math Circle

We don’t have any current plans for a High School Math Circle as preparation for the All-State Math Team is getting underway. Students for the ARML/All-State Math Team are selected based on their performance on local contests and the AMCs. We then have monthly or bi-monthly practices in Columbia starting in April to determine who’s on the A Team and who’s on the B Team, and compete in the American Regions Math League (ARML) Competition at the University of Georgia on the first Saturday after Memorial Day (this year, that’s June 4th).

For some of the practice problems from last year, see here:
