Okay, next Tuesday (October 19) we will be having our first official Math League Competition.
Before we take it though, we will be taking an older Math League test as practice.
A side note: Get your Mu Alpha Theta Dues in! We need to have Mr. Sparkman register our chapter of Mu Alpha Theta
before we can take part in the upcoming Rocket City Competition.
And as always, remember to take your binders home. Or get a binder to use for Math Club.
