Huntington High School’s Mathletes team members are always up for an intellectual challenge. They enjoy wrestling with a difficult problem that cries out for solving; in fact, they thrive on it.
Huntington High School Mathletes club faculty advisor Keith Mattis.
The team typically meets on Tuesdays after school in Room 121 to discuss and grapple with fun mathematical puzzles (Sudoku and Battleship type puzzles) that all levels can do. They are usually logic centered, requiring no higher level math skills. The group also works to solve one or two more challenging math problems that math teacher and Mathletes faculty advisor Keith Mattis walks the students through.
Once a month, Huntington High School’s Mathletes team members compete, working on a set of challenging problems that are posted to students all over the island. Competitors have six tricky math problems to work on for about 30 minutes. The program is coordinated by the Suffolk County Math League, The highest 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 questions that all levels of students can handle. There is no selection process or cuts or anything else of the sort.

“This year, we’re making Mathletes a little more fun,” Mr. Mattis said. “Even if students have other clubs when we meet on Tuesday at 2:30 in Room 121, they can pop in, sign in and grab the puzzles to work on later.”
