In the 2010-2011 school year, we are meeting on Tuesdays for the for the 7th and 8th graders and on Wednesdays for the 6th graders. We meet in Mrs. Urban's room as she is the math team coach.  There are four meets annually - one in early November (grade 6) or early December (grades 7 & 8), one in January, one in March, and the last in early May. The sixth graders compete at different meets for the first three meets, but then everyone goes to one large meet in early May. All of these meets are local to Southern Maine and are coordinated by coaches in the area. As an addition this year, in March 2011 we will be competing at the Math Counts competition. This is a national competition much like the Spelling Bee or Geography Bee where the winners are invited to compete at higher levels.
