Happy new year to the 200+ math team folks!
I hope you got a chance to embrace your inner 5 year old and play in the snow. =)I trust that you all got a chance to relax, rest, and recharge before second semester.I love that we all get a chance to continue to meet. Especially with how crazy the world is and an entire year of not meeting in person the previous academic year, I do not take for granted the fact that we can meet together.
ok ok ok ok…
For this first day back to school on January 4, 2022, we will not be meeting as a whole group. The coaches and student leaders that you see in the to: and cc: lines above will be meeting as we organize several events that are coming up. Here is a highlight, in chronological order, of what we are going to get ready for you.
2/2/2022 Tuesday. Yes. The moons have aligned. The second day of the second month in the 2022nd year is a Tuesday – and it is an NSML event in Evanston IL. As it is a bus ride, we will be limited to taking only the top 10 in each grade.
2/26/2022 Saturday. Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics (ICTM) Regional math contest. We will serve as the host site for Stevenson students interested in competing in the regional and state math contest.
3/10/2022 Thursday. NSML meet #5. Normally, over 1000 students from all 50+ schools descend upon Glenbrook South High School in the last NSML event of the year to determine the winner… ummmm-icron, we will see what happens. =)
4/2/2022 Saturday. For three consecutive Saturdays, the math team will be hosting a math circle event for our feeder schools. We will likely be looking for some more volunteers to help run the event, so keep an eye out for future announcements.
4/23/2022 Saturday. After having to cancel in 2021, we look forward to reinstating the math tournament for our feeder schools – the junior high math tournament!
4/30/2022 Saturday. The ICTM State math contest will be held on this day. Location and format to be determined.
So yeah, there are a few logistical items we need to get in order. In the mean time, please check out the google page for your year as your coach may be posting material for our next NSML event.
thanks and see ya on 1/11
