Huntington High School’s Mathletes team members have always been enthusiastic about a good mathematical challenge and this year is no different.
“So this year, we are trying to return to our normal schedule,” said math teacher Keith Mattis, who serves as the club’s faculty advisor. “From September through March, we meet weekly every Tuesday after school in Room 121 to discuss and try fun mathematical puzzles (Sudoku type puzzles) that all levels can do. They are usually logic centered, requiring no higher level math skills. We also do one or two more challenging math problems that I walk the students through.”
Huntington High School math teacher Keith Mattis is the Mathletes club advisor.
Once a month, Huntington High School’s Mathletes team members compete with some challenging problems posted to student all over the island. “They have six tricky math problems to work on for about 30 minutes,” Mr. Mattis said. “This is part of a Suffolk County Math League and high scoring students and teams are recognized.”
Any Huntington High School student who is interested in math and having fun while pursuing mentally challenging activities are welcome to join the club. “There are definitely questions that all levels of students can handle,” Mr. Mattis said. “Students can still join. There is no selection process or cuts or anything.”
