Our first meeting of the year will be held on September 2nd.
Welcome to the Fairview High School Math Club! Our purpose is to promote interest and excitement about mathematics in a friendly, collaborative environment!
We extend our mathematical knowledge and critical thinking skills acquired in math class by practicing math contest problems during our weekly practices. These math problems stimulate the mind and enhance our pattern recognition and logical reasoning capabilities!
These contest math problems are quite different from the math that you do in your math classes at school; they're more logic-based, and only require an understanding of basic algebra and geometry. They are also a lot more fun! If you get stuck on any of the problems, feel free to ask for help. We take a casual approach in Math Club!
Among other activities, we participate in several math contests throughout the year, including Math League, Mandelbrot, CSU Math Day, UNC Math Contest, Colorado Math Olympiad, and the AMC. Below are brief descriptions of each:
Math League: 6 rounds from October-March of 30 minutes each. Calculator is allowed.
Mandelbrot: 5 rounds from November-March of 45 minutes each. No calculator. Also, 3 rounds of Team Play of 60 minutes each.
CSU Math Day: Math team spends a Thursday at the CSU Campus, participating in a college bowl-type team competition and individual written PROBE exam.
UNC Math Contest: Consists of a qualifying round in early November and a final round in late January.
Colorado Math Olympiad: Individual, proof-based test consisting of 5 problems in 4 hours. Must be excused from class on that Friday to go to UC-Colorado Springs for the contest.
American Math Competitions: AMC 10/12 in February. Consists of 25 multiple choice questions in 75 minutes.
