Proceeds benefit Norther Nevada Math Club

Northern Nevada Math Club Inc, is an IRS approved 501(c)3 focused on helping students in grades 12 and below find their joy of math and encourage them to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) related degrees and careers in northern Nevada.

 

We do all of this by holding fun, social, team based math competitions. This isn't your typical classroom math. Our problems are challenging and expose students to new math ideas and concepts.

 

We emphasize continuous learning and send participants home with solutions that will help them learn and grow in their math and problem solving skills.

 

We encourage students to solve problems in a way that make sense to them. There is no "right" or "wrong" way. There may be quicker or more elegant ways but that doesn't make one "right" and one "wrong."

 

We want students to see math as it is in the real world. Real world math involves working with others. As such, each of our contests has a team round where students work together. They can bounce ideas for how to solve the problems and check each other's work.

 

This has two benefits:

1) students learn to show their work because it benefits them to do so, and 2) students learn to listen and work with their teammates to solve problems - just as they will in the real world.

 

So, come math with us and see how much fun math is!
