The Upper Valley Math Club will cover: 

a) material students may get in high school, but at a level they will understand now; 

b) material students may never receive in any grade; and

c) special topics, including always "Math and Science in the News"

For example, take a look at the following questions. Are you likely to get 8H and 2T when you toss a coin 10x? How about when you toss that coin 100X....are you likely to get 80H and 20T - why or why not?  This is an example of the sort of problem/activity/material the math club will cover in its meetings.

The leader of the Upper Valley Math Club is Lou Maresca who is in his 38th year of teaching math and Chemistry, and has run math clubs for students of this age group many times over the years. 

Students should bring a pencil, some colored pencils, a notebook, and perhaps a snack and beverage with them.

The Upper Valley Math Club is of course totally free! The UVMC is open to All Students in this age group in the Upper Valley (NH and VT), including students who are home-schooled. 

For more information, email Lou at 'stattip@aol.com', or call Lou, between 10:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., at (603) 643-3609.
