The Helena Area Mathletes program is for 8th-12th grade students in Helena and the surrounding area who are interested in mathematics. Our activities will inlucde exploration of a wide range of mathematical topics not normally seen in the K-12 curriculum. These activities are generously sponsored by a Dolciani grant from the MAA. The local activities are being coordinated by Dr. Holly Zullo, Carroll College, and Mr. Dennis Peterson, Capital High School. Please contact either of us if you have questions. If you would like to receive email reminders for events, please send an email to Dr. Holly Zullo to indicate your interest (it would help if the subject line was Helena Math Circle).
