The MatheMagicians Club Group Meetings is a series of free* after-school math enrichment meets for talented middle school students. It is a learning opportunity for all students interested in math beyond school. Through engaging and interactive discussions, participants learn how to creatively solve math problems. Sources and problem types are derived from several common middle school math competitions, including MATHCOUNTS and AMC 8.
