Welcome to BMMS Math Team 2021-2022

BMMS math team is organized by parents for students committed to develop their math knowledge and problem solving skills. Club members will meet weekly to deepen math knowledge from concept to practice. Team will prepare for annual competitions such as AMC 8, AMC 10, MathCounts, and MathLeague. Additionally, club will coordinate with high school students with excellent math skill and fresh competition experience to coach a few occurrences when possible. 
The club will not succeed without parent volunteers. We encourage all parents with STEM background to step up to coach a few meetings.

2021-2022 BMMS Math Team Year End Gathering – Congratulations to all for a productive year!

Head Coach: Kai Deng
