Math Club is a competitive experience provided at Cottage Lake for students who would like to participate in groups and in individual contest experiences. It is a challenge for students who have strong math skills, but all students are encouraged to participate because the competition requires teams of members with diverse ability. Some students can really understand the problem and set up a plan. Some students are excellent artists who can represent solutions and plans accurately. Some students are good at organizing the group to complete the problem on time and work together. The teams participate in a district-wide competition in the spring. Along with competitions, math club participants have the opportunity for practical application. The applications challenge students and builds better understanding of concepts. We often will take our work outside and apply math to the environment around us.
For more information or to join Cottage Lake's Math Club, watch for a notice in the school newsletter or from your student's teacher.
