Thursday 11:00-12:00, September through March
Open to all middle schoolers & ambitious younger students
The Asheville Homeschool MathCounts Club was founded in 2004 to offer all local homeschooled middle school students the opportunity to pursue competition mathematics in a fun group setting. Students in the MathCounts club play math and logic games, work challenging problems, and learn advanced topics and problem solving strategies. In addition to our weekly intra-club competitions, our students participate in the American Mathematics Competition 8, the NC State Mathematics Contest, and the MathCounts regional and state-level competitions.

Intensive Training Club: $40/month
Our Intensive Training Club is a focused, rigorous program designed to help young math students push themselves far beyond the standard math curriculum . During our weekly sessions, we delve deeply into number theory, counting theory, probability, and many other topics that are crucial to success in advanced math but do not really fit in the traditional educational progression. We discuss strategies for solving longer, more complicated problems and develop sophisticated logic and proof concepts. In addition to weekly meetings, students are expected to complete 2-3 hours per week of homework.
