The American Institute of Mathematics (AIM), a non-profit mathematics research institute, provides the following community outreach programs in Morgan Hill. All our programs are provided by AIM at no cost to participants.
- Mathletics– after school program offered each fall which alternates hands-on learning with word problems, for students in 4th and 5th grade.
- MathCounts6– 6th graders tackle tough word problems in new arenas, such as counting, probability and statistics in this once-a-week fall program.
- Math Olympiad Contest – students in 4th-6th grade meet once a month, at night, to participate in this national math competition.
- MATHCOUNTS – emphasizing areas outside the traditional math curriculum, 7th and 8th graders tackle problem solving in ways that both challenge and enrich, from October through February each year.
- Mu Alpha Theta – high school students in 9th through 12th grades run their own math clubs where they both mentor talented younger students and participate in math contests for their own age group.
- Director’s Circle – challenging seminars for outstanding students with AIM’s director, Dr. Conrey.
Monthly game nights engage both students and adults in games of skill and logic. Here is your chance to finally learn to solve Sudoku or Killer Sudoku puzzles, play SET, enjoy old favorites like Scrabble or Boogle… and more!
Morgan Hill now has its own Math Teachers’ Circle! Local math teachers in any grade can attend monthly meetings to explore rich math problems, rediscover the joy in learning math, and network with fellow teachers and mathematicians. Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month, at the Morgan Hill CCC. Please contact Kelley Barnes at firstname.lastname@example.org for the latest information.
Math Teachers’ Circles are professional learning communities of math teachers and professors. Groups meet regularly to work on challenging mathematics problems, allowing teachers to enrich their knowledge and experience of math, while building meaningful partnerships with other teachers and mathematicians.
