NEWS FLASH:  After the first meet of the year, Newton North Tigers are in first place in the GBML.   Here are the standings.


The Newton North Math Team is open to all students who are interested in solving challenging math problems in a timed setting.  We work together to develop our skills and knowledge during weekly practices, every Wednesday after school from 3 PM to 4 PM, except for weeks that we are off at a competition (see schedule below).  Teams are chosen separately for each meet, based on students' ability to solve the problems needed in the upcoming contest.  Students are welcome to join at any point in the year.
