Math Club
Math Club Sponsors - Mrs. Mims and Ms. Bingham

We had a great first year in Math Club. As this year comes to an end, we look forward to next year's math team. We will be having tryouts at the beginning of the 2016-17 school year. At this time, we have will have space for ten 4th graders and ten 5th graders. If your child is interested in being on the math team, you can have them practice over the summer by downloading the practice tests that can be found on this page. Students on the math team must have immediate recall of all addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. They must also be able to grasp advanced math concepts quickly.

What is Math Team?
Math Team spends the year learning and practicing Intermediate level math. The students go to several contests throughout the year competing against other elementary students. The tests (Number Sense, Calculator, and General Math) are written tests and are taken individually. There are no team competitions. 

Number Sense - Students have 10-15 minutes to answer as many questions as they can (total of 80). You can not show any work. It must all be done in your head. This test is taken in pen and any scratch marks/write-overs are marked wrong. Any questions skipped are also marked incorrect.

Calculator - Students are given 30 minutes to answer 80 questions. Metzler provides a TI-34 MutliView for students to use. This test is taken in pencil. Answers need to be written in scientific notation with 3 significant digits. All skipped questions are considered incorrect.

General Math - Students are given 40 minutes to answer 50 questions. This test is taken in pencil, and students are not penalized for skipped questions.



Coach Paul
We had the pleasure of getting Coach Paul to teach our Math Club this year. Paul is a retired KISD Intermediate Math teacher. He is an expert on all the tests that we take when we go to competition. If your child is interested in attending his summer math camps, check out the link below.
