Who wants to win $5000?  There is a contest titled "Who wants to be a Mathematician. The first two rounds are online and the final round is in San Diego in January. The first round must be done here at school with me on Wednesday September 20th.

Qualifying test: Contestants are chosen based on their scores on qualifying tests. There are two rounds of tests, which will be conducted online  thanks to Maplesoft, the Who Wants to Be a Mathematician technology sponsor. The first round will be Sept. 20th. There will also be a practice test available so you can become accustomed to the test procedure. See Mrs. Taylor for the login to get practice tests.

The test is 10 questions and you have 15 minutes to complete. No calculator is allowed. If you score an 8 or above you move on to the second round.

Let Mrs. Taylor know ASAP if you want to compete.

I'm sorry but I have to cancel our meeting. If you have any free time after school the week after vacation I would appreciate some help with pi day. I will also be bringing the questions to cut and paste to SSR tutoring and if you are not tutoring you can work on pi day questions.

Volunteers Needed

Thursday night (February 2nd) is parent teacher conferences and I am in need of 4 more time keepers. You would sit outside the classroom and keep track of the time that parents are in the meeting. Five minutes after the conference starts you knock on the door to let them know time is up. I would need you here a little before 6:00 and you can leave as soon as the last conference happens.
8 pm at the latest. I would give you 3 service hours for your time.
Please let me know ASAP if you can volunteer for this.
