Vanderbilt-led Nashville Math Club looking for middle and high school students

Local students in grades 5–12 who enjoy being challenged by math are invited to join the Nashville Math Club, an initiative led by Vanderbilt University instructors Larry Rolen and Alice Mark.

The club resumed Sept. 20 and will meet every other Tuesday from 5 to 7 p.m. on Vanderbilt’s campus. New applicants are welcome to join at any time. An application and more information can be found on the Nashville Math Club website.

Rolen, assistant professor of mathematics, and Mark, senior lecturer in mathematics, co-direct the club and are assisted by other Vanderbilt faculty, as well as graduate students and undergraduates. Students will build their math and problem-solving skills with engaging activities such as learning about the geometry of bubbles or cutting a bagel like a mathematician.

Please note: The club is not a homework help session.
