If you like crunching numbers... if you like competition... if you want to have some fun... be sure to try out for this year's team!

Description: Math Contest Club started out as just a "Math Counts Team" and the Math Counts competition remains the primary focus of the season. But in recent years Coach Soesbe has added several other contests to the schedule. His team is always doing "mail in" style contests here at Churchill or traveling for other competitions.Head Coach: Mr. SoesbeTeacher Coach: Mrs. LockeBio: Jeff Soesbe is a software engineer for a robotics company. He is a Stanford alum and the parent of a former Churchill IB student. He has a love for math and puzzles that rivals even the "nerdiest" middle schooler. He grew up competing in math competitions and his personal best for the rubix cube is around 25 seconds. In addition to coaching our team, Mr. Soesbe runs an organization called "Sac Math" which serves to offer local math contests to all grade levels. Many of his competitions are hosted at Churchill and Casa Roble High School. Our Math club has flouished under Mr. Soesbe's 10 years of guidance, it is a great time to be on the Math team!
Tryouts/ First Meeting: Tryouts and informational meetings occur in the Fall. Watch BTV and talk to your Math teacher for more info. Please be present to the first meetings if you are interested in joining the team. There will probably be a tryout out test and a 2 week trial period and then if needed, cuts will be made to bring the team to a reasonable size. Last year, over 100 kids tried out for the 30 spots.
Practice Days: Once per week, typically Fridays from 2:30-4:30pm. Room F4
Team Size: 30 students
Competition Dates / Locations: TBA
