On a snowy winter day in 2014, teachers at the Speyer Legacy School dreamed up the idea of a math competition for elementary and middle school girls, to foster their passion for math at an early age.
They enlisted the team at Math-M-Addicts to bring their idea to life. And so, GAIM was born—a community-building, mind-bending, fun-as-heck math event for girls in grades 3-8. Teams of four girls from the same school compete together to unravel mathematical puzzles inspired by phenomenal women from history.
Math-M-Addicts is a selective, rigorous Saturday math enrichment program in NYC for 4th through 12th graders that focuses on creative problem solving in a collaborative setting. Students are introduced to advanced math topics in ways that build their critical, strategic, and logical thinking and communication skills. Many of our teachers are former math Olympiad winners and contestants, and with their experience Math-M-Addicts offers some of the most advanced math curriculum available in NYC.
