An Invitation to Math Team

M got invited to join math team by his math teacher (also the math team coach). Mr. D had mentioned to me at our conference last week that he thought M would be good on math team, but that he had to check and see if 6th graders were allowed to join. Evidently the answer was yes, because Mr. D. called here and invited M to come to practice.

I took M in early Friday morning for practice. He said he knew the other 2 boys there (and likes both of them well enough) and that it was OK, but he didn't know some of the stuff - like the Pythagorean Theorem. I found an interesting looking site to help M learn about the Pythagorean Theorem.

I had fun with math club in high school and Math Team is really big in D's school - the kids seem to really like it and the teacher who runs it. So, M could have an activity to enjoy for several years if he wants.
