SeDoMoCha Math Team

Why You Should Join Our Club

We have listed some reasons why it would be a great idea to join the math team:

1. Meet new friends

One of the huge benefits of math team is being able to hang out with friends during and after school, as well as meet new friends.   There are fun, outgoing, and entertaining students who join math team, all of which are eager to meet new friends. By joining the club you have a chance to meet new friends, and socialize with students that you might not get the chance to on a daily basis.

2. Learning in a fun way

A lot of students will join the math club to compete on the team and have a chance to win a prize. If you’re interested in math and even want to have a career in it, the math team is the perfect place to start. Here you’ll be dealing with unusual, out of the box problems you don’t normally cover in school, which will help you develop and become even better at math.

3. Snacks and drinks

OK, no one will actually join the math club just for the soda and pizza, but this is certainly a big plus. There will be some practices in which snacks and drinks are provided for students.  We usually stop a Subway for lunch on the way home from our first meet.  During our state meet, we order pizza and drinks for lunch.  YUMMY

4. Work on your confidence

Team environment is a perfect surrounding for you to practice your social skills. Even if you’re not the most outgoing person ever, the math club members work together and will encourage you to participate with them. This is a great chance for you to learn how to constructively discuss problems and work in a team.

5. Compete at tournaments

Of course, one of the top reasons the math club exists is for competition. There is no greater sense of pride than winning the first place and returning to your school victorious. Nothing can compare to the team spirit and having your teammates support you through good and bad. Plus, having a math competition medal to brag about is not a small thing at all.

We hope that you’re now at least a little bit interested in joining your school’s math club. Go ahead and try it out, and don’t forget to tell us all about your experience!
