We are in the planning stages for the 2021-22 school year. We anticipate a transition to more in-person sessions depending on prevailing health considerations. Please stay tuned for the announcement of our September Qualifying test which will be offered online.
Raritan Valley Math Group (RVMG) is a 501c3, 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, Hunterdon, 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 teams which compete in regional and national mathematics competitions including the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament (HMMT), MMaths, Purple Comet, Carnegie Mellon Informatics and Mathematics Competition (CMIMC), and the American Regions Mathematics League (ARML).
Due to the pace and level of the math sessions, we accept new students based on a qualifying test which we hold twice per year in September and March. The next qualifier is tentatively scheduled for September 25, 2021. Please email email@example.com if you would like to be contacted for our next event.
