Competition Math Class – for grades 1-5

Students who take this course will be introduced to problems that are commonly seen in various math competitions such as Number Theory and Combinatorics. We encourage joint participation in the MathRocks! contest series while participating in this class as each month we will go over the more challenging problems students encountered during the MathRocks! competition. Students will also have the opportunity to make friends with other participants so that they may see familiar faces on competition day. *Contingency Dates are reserved to make up a class in the event that Nevada Math needs to reschedule a date due to weather or illness.
 
 Students who took this class during the fall semester are encouraged to return as there will be continuously new material.
Newcomers are always welcome.
