Math Pentathlon is a volunteer-run after-school program that practices math skills and logical reasoning. We use games to strengthen basic math skills, develop good sportsmanship, and foster creative thinking. For more information, check out the Math Pentathlon web site.

Volunteering

We are currently looking for coaches for all divisions. Coaches should plan on attending the National Math Pentathlon Annual Workshop (see below) and committing 2 hours of time each week for preparation and the meeting. Children of coaches are guaranteed a spot in the program. If interested in coaching please email mathpentath@davisdolphins.org.

Registration

Fill in the application for your division. Applications close on Oct 7th. Signing up does not guarantee a spot on the team as we are limited by the number of coaches we have.

Division I – Kindergarten and First Grade

Division II – Second and Third Grade

Division III – Fourth and Fifth Grade

Parents will be notified via email no later than October 12th if their student has been selected for this year’s team. Parents will need to complete registration by signing up to volunteer for 2 club meetings, completing the Behavior Contract and paying the $20 registration fee at the main office. Parents are also welcome to attend the Workshop on October 15th.
