Rocket City Junior Math Mania

Hosted by the outstanding Grissom High School Math Team, this contest is for 4th - 8th grade students. Students compete in individual and team events.
Grissom High School has a wonderful reputation as a top academic school in the US, and the math team has long been a strong part of the academic program at Grissom. We at Weatherly hope to challenge and encourage our students to continue that tradtion should they go on to be students at GHS. At the same time, we want to have FUN with MATH!

Here is an interesting article from the online journal Engineer Education, about the Grissom math team's hosting the GHS Math Tournament for high schools.
