Atlanta Neighborhood Math Competitions

As mentioned before, the mission behind this blog is to help create a culture of education in homes and communities. Students are naturally competitive in groups, they love to win, and love to represent where they are from. Why not channel all of that into building and reinforcing math skills and starting a community tradition?

The City of Atlanta has agreed to put on the first ever Atlanta Neighborhood Math Bowls. Elementary and Middle School students will be coached in math concepts by volunteers, and different urban areas will be represented, so get excited.

We are still looking for more math coach volunteers to go out to the different Centers of Hope during the week to help students prepare. Prep sessions last from 45 minutes to a full hour between the hours of 4-5:30pm at any of the recreation centers, which are listed below. Saturday math coaching also takes place any time between 10am-4pm (start time determined by volunteer). If interested in participating as a volunteer, please email with the following information:
  1. Name

  3. School/Company position
  4. Contact Number
  5. Contact Email
  6. Location Preference 1

  8. Mon-Friday day availability (one 45 min session between 4-5:30pm)
