MAA LogoWe are building a team for the Math Madness Competition designed by the folks at American Mathematics Competition. The online platform for the competition is In-ter-stel-lar. I have had 13 students who are interested in being on the team. I hope that you will also invite students to join us.

If you have students who are interested, I need to have their e-mail addresses so I can invite them to join. There is a minimum requirement of 5 team members, but there is no upper limit. We hope to meet in the computer lab on Mondays after school (4:15-5:15), so that each student will have a computer to participate in the competition. Our SEM team will be put into competition with another randomly selected team from the US for a scrimmage on September 16, and the tournament will proceed round robin style.

We must participate in the practice scrimmage in order to be included in the tournament, so I need the e-mail addresses right away. There will be a practice meet next Monday, September 16, at 4:15. Actual competition begins on Monday, September 30. Let me know if you have questions.
