The target audience for the Junior Math Club is middle and high school students. The purpose of the Junior Math Club is to get together to discuss and explore topics that are interesting from a mathematical point of view. This exploration may focus on understanding the details of an interesting problem or application. It may also focus more on working through and solving problems.
We will shift our focus toward preparation for math competitions, such as the AMC 8 and AMC 10, as the dates for these competitions near. The AMC 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple-choice examination in middle school mathematics for students in middle school. (Click here for details about the AMC 8.) The AMC 10 is a 25-question, 75-minute, multiple-choice examination in high school mathematics for students in 10th grade and below. (Click here for details about the AMC 10.) We host these competitions on the UL Lafayette campus.
Everyone in the target group (middle and high school students) is welcome. You do not need to formally join and there is no charge to participate. Please come and see if you enjoy a meeting. We hope that you will enjoy yourself and will decide that you want to attend on a regular basis.
We meet in Maxim Doucet Hall rooms 201 and 206 fortnightly (every second week) on Sunday afternoons from 3:00 through 4:30.
The meeting dates for Fall 2023 are: 27 August, 10 September, 24 September, 8 October, 22 October, 5 November, 19 November, 3 December.
