Math by Mail offers talented and curious children (grades 3-9 ) extra-curricular activities in recreational mathematics that develop their creative thinking and logic.
Activities include four in-depth topics that are exciting, challenging and, most importantly, fun! The in-depth topics are spread over the school-year and, once uploaded, can be accessed anytime online to be done at home or at school.
In addition to the in depth topics, participants receive a weekly challnge with additional riddles and challenges, the Mathletter. The challenges and questions and issues from the in-depth topics are further discussed in the Forum with the Math by Mail team - researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
In addition, we will hold several Special Events in the course of the year-- online "live" activites with the Math by Mail team-- a unique opportunity for participants to have a conversation, share their ideas and get feedback from researchers in one of the world's leading science research institutions.
Participation is $100 for a school-year- that's only $10 a month!
