During our meetings, we explore math topics by using origami, modeling, and games. Our first meeting this year will be on Thursday, February 29th. There will be a fun math activity, treats, and prizes. If you are interested in coming, you will need to fill out a permission slip and return it to Mrs. Plott by February 27th. You can get a copy of the permission slip from Mrs. Plott (or your math teacher). If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Plott (
