Junior WVU Math Club

With support of many WVU math faculty members, Charis Tsikkou and I are organizing the Junior WVU Math Club, a series of weekly meetings for Morgantown area high-school students. The sessions are centered around a mix of olympiad problem solving and lectures on mathematical topics that complement the high-school math curriculum. We are grateful for the support of MAA, through a Dolciani Enrichment Grant.
