UW-Eau Claire to Offer Math for Young Achievers

RELEASED: Jan. 20, 2006

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education/UW-Extension once again 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 to 10:45 a.m. beginning Feb. 4 and concluding April 29 (no classes March 18 and 25 and April 15) at Campus School on the UW-Eau Claire campus.

Once a student is enrolled, program director Dr. Mohamed Elgindi, mathematics professor at UW-Eau Claire, will assess skills and place students at the appropriate program level in consultation with both parents and teachers. Elgindi tailors the course curriculum 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.

The class fee is $195 for instruction and materials. Participants may register in one of three ways. To register by phone, call (715)836-3636 or toll free (866)UWEC4CE. To register by fax, print the registration form available online and fax it to (715)836-5263. To register by mail, print the registration form available from the Web site and mail it to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Continuing Education, PO Box 4004, Eau Claire, Wis., 54702-4004.

Participants are encouraged to register by Feb. 1. Participants will receive a confirmation letter showing rooms and times prior to the start of classes. On-site registration also will be available the first day of class, on a space available basis, at 9:15 a.m. in Room 105 of the Campus School.
