'Math for Young Achievers' Offered
September to December at UW-Eau Claire

RELEASED: Aug. 15, 2007

EAU CLAIRE — This fall, 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 ninth 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 Sept. 15 and concluding Dec. 1, in Hibbard Humanities Hall on the UW-Eau Claire campus. No classes will meet during Thanksgiving week.

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 is tailored to each student's needs, and students advance through the program levels at their own pace.

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