UW-Eau Claire Offers Math Enrichment
for Students Ages 5-15

RELEASED: Aug. 24, 2006

EAU CLAIRE — UW-Eau Claire Continuing Education/UW-Extension will offer Math for Young Achievers, a program for students with exceptional mathematical abilities.

The multi-level program for elementary and middle school students emphasizes improving mathematical proficiency and enhancing mental math abilities. In its eighth year, the program boasts several graduates who are now in advanced university mathematics programs.

Classes will be held Saturday mornings from 9:30-10:45 a.m. beginning Sept. 16 and concluding Dec. 9 (no classes the week of Thanksgiving) at Campus School on the UW-Eau Claire campus.

Once a student is enrolled, program director Dr. Mohamed Elgindi, professor of mathematics at UW-Eau Claire, will assess skills and place students at the appropriate program level. The course curriculum will be tailored to each student's needs, and students advance through the program levels at their own pace. Adjustments will be made in the first several sessions if students advance quickly.

Class fee is $195 per student for instruction and materials. To register or for additional information, call UW-Eau Claire Continuing Education/UW-Extension at 715-836-3636/toll-free 866-893-2423, or visit the Continuing Education Web site.
