Off to a Great Start

I’m amazed at how fast time is flies. Kids are back in school and settling into their routines, which means it’s time for NNVMath programs to get started.

Last week, we started our programs with 21st Century and the kids were great! It was fun to see how much they’ve grown over the summer. This upcoming week a number of program start:

  1. After School Math Club – This is revival of a pre-pandemic program we ran. Kids will do activities, games, crafts, etc. that develop their foundational math skills but don’t feel like “math” as many kids think of it. It starts Wednesday, Sept. 7.
  2. Competition Math Club – Think of this as a junior version of our Competition Team Development Program. It is for students in grades 1-6, divided between 2 sessions based on their ability to do double digit multiplication. Priority is given to those who are registered for the MathRocks! series. This program will review problems after each MathRocks! and include instruction. First session meets Saturday, Sept. 10. The first 2 sessions will cover the rules for the various round, do practice rounds, and discuss strategy. These first 2 are all about getting them ready for the Sept 24th MathRocks! contest.
  3. Competition Team Development Program (CTDP) – 13 seasons ago, I went to ARML as a parent and this is my 11th year holding practices and taking kids to Vegas (talk about time flying). The program has grown and changes have been made along the way, but it is essentially the same and it is what instigated the creation of NNVMath and every other program we run. You can find more information by clicking the CTDP tab in the top menu bar. First practice is on Sept 11 and is an info session and mixer for the kids. It will go from 2 until 4:30pm.

Registration for the above is still open. Just go to https://MyNNVMath.org and create an account if you don’t already have one.

My hope for a number of years has been to post here regularly and, now that we have some amazing staff (see the newsletter mentioned above if you don’t know what I’m talking about), I think it may become a reality. Some of the posts will be functional but, hopefully, most will not as that can be really boring if it isn’t the information you are really wanting at the moment:) ~ Sherry

CML (grades 4-8)

We offered these as part of our MathRocks! series last year, however, as we are unable to offer them online anymore, they are not included this year.

All CML experiences are designed to both maximize student opportunities to participate and to improve their problem solving capabilities.
Your students will be participating with other students on the same grade level from schools all over the United States.

Awards: We will present ribbons for top monthly performers; CML will provide medals for top accumulative season performers.
