For the Fall 2020 semester, all RVMG sessions will be online. The format for winter and onwards will be determined based on the prevailing health and safety considerations.
Raritan Valley Math Group, Inc. (RVMG) is 501(c)(3), volunteer-led group whose purpose is to deepen mathematical understanding and problem solving in middle and high school aged students. We explore areas of math that are beyond the typical scope of the public school sequence. Our students are a mix of public schooled, private schooled, and homeschooled. Most reside in Morris, Union, Essex, Somerset, or Mercer County in New Jersey.
RVMG has two volunteer coaches: Simon Lee, a former math competitor, placed third in Canada in the Euclid Competition, fifth in the Canadian Mathematical Olympiad, and top 100 in the Putnam Competition. He studied pure math as an undergraduate at the University of Waterloo and also as a graduate student at Columbia University. Coach Stela Anguelova is a proud graduate of the Sofia Mathematical HS. She completed her undergraduate and graduate courses in pure and applied mathematics from Agnes Scott College and UNC Chapel Hill. Math Advanced Study Semesters at Penn State ’01, Ithaca College M.A.T. ’08 with emphasis on curriculum development & gifted education in math. Her credentials also include NY State certification ’08, OMSI Math Circles for MS & HS students Co-Founder, Math Kangaroo State Director, NJ Enrichment Academy Owner and Math Clubs advisor for the MMS Math Clubs in Millburn / Short Hills since 2012.
A subset of exceptional RVMG students form the Raritan Valley Math Team (RVMT). RVMT competes in regional and national mathematics competitions including the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament (HMMT), the Princeton University Mathematics Competition (PUMaC), and the American Regions Mathematics League (ARML). At HMMT in November 2017, RVMT finished 10th place overall (out of 147 teams), received fourth place in the Team Round, and tenth place in the Guts Round.
We accept new students based on an examination which we hold twice per year in September and March. Our next exam will take place in March 2021, details to be determined.
