To stimulate enthusiasm and a love for Mathematics
To introduce important Mathematical concepts
To teach major strategies for problem solving
To develop Mathematical flexibility in solving problems

To foster Mathematical creativity and ingenuity
To provide the satisfaction, joy, and thrill of meeting challenges
To learn to work effectively on a small team
Your brain is like a muscle - you have to use it to make it stronger. Mathletes will be solving challenging problems every week in practice.
After School Math Progams:
Mathletes in Training (MiT): 2nd-3rd grade
Mathletes: 4th-6th grade
Middle School Mathletes (MSM):6th-8th grade
High School Mathletes (HSM): 9th-11th grade
Advanced Topics: 6th-8th grade
Classes are currently only offered online. All are welcome to join. Historically in person programs have been offered in the LASD school district in the Bay Area.
Homework is strongly encouraged. Check out the individual programs for more information.
I will NOT tolerate ANY type of teasing, name-calling, or destructive behavior during practice. It is critical that Mathletes feel this is an environment in which they can ask questions, take risks, and feel ‘safe.’ IF a Mathlete engages in destructive behavior they will immediately be kicked off the team. If this happens, the Mathlete can petition to rejoin the team if they meet with me and their parent.
Refunds and Credits:
Refunds are issued if:
If a family is new to Mathletes and provides notification before the 4th practice of their FIRST Mathletes session, then they will receive a pro-rated refund for unused classes, less a $40 processing fee.
Credits are issued if:
If you are unable to attend online classes due to a change in your school schedule - for example, your school is now in person - you will be invited to attend another online class that might fit your schedule. People can switch from one class to another without any processing charge - they would simply pay the difference in tuition (if there is one). If we can't find a suitable online class, you will be given a pro-rated credit towards future classes and camps.
