Careers with GAIM

 

About Us

Math-M-Addicts (MMA, mathmaddicts.com) is a premier math program that is committed to working with students who have an interest in math beyond what is offered as part of school curricula.

One of MMA’s initiatives is Girls’ Adventures in Mathematics (GAIM), a themed math Olympiad for upper elementary and middle school girls. In 2017, we held GAIM in six locations worldwide—New York City, Upstate New York, the Navajo Nation, Kansas, Indiana, and London—and we served around 400 girls. We are eager to continue expanding our reach and continue inspiring girls to continue their love for mathematics in the upcoming years.
