Berkeley Math Tournament
About the Course:
The goal of this course is to organize and facilitate an on-site math competition for local high school students. In doing this, students will improve their organizational and leadership skills by working in teams to accomplish various tasks.
At the start of each class, the student facilitators may give a brief announcement describing the status of each group. Students will then split up into groups and work on their assigned tasks.
- Tech support- This group will be responsible for anything to do with a computer, e.g., websites, registration, maintaining a mailing list.
- Publicity- This group will be responsible for things like advertising the competition among high schools as well as recruiting Berkeley volunteers for the day of the contest.
- Graphic Design - creating logos, designing fliers, T-shirts, etc.
- Writing and Test Solving Problems- This group will be responsible for putting together the test itself.
