Archimedes Math Schools

Give me a place to stand and I shall move the earth.
             -- Archimedes, 287 - 212 BC

We plan to run classes for children in Grades 4, 5 and 6 in the 2013 - 2014 school year. If you wish to be notified by email as soon as we open registration in May, for the 2013 - 2014 school year, please fill out this online form.

Archimedes Math Schools is a non-profit organization that was founded by math professors in Winnipeg who recognize the need for a low cost after-school math program for elementary school children. With the exception of our university student teachers, all individuals involved with the day-to-day operation of Archimedes Math Schools are unpaid volunteers.

We run after-school math classes for primary school-aged children. All lessons are planned by university math professors, who work as volunteers with the program, and are delivered by university math students. Our goal is to provide a structured and comfortable environment where children may expand their knowledge, improve their skills, increase their confidence and develop an appreciation for mathematics. The classes are intended to be an extended version of a math club that Professors Anna and Ross Stokke ran out of their home for three years. More detailed information about our program can be found on this page.

We currently have 63 children in Grades 4 & 5 enrolled in our program, which runs weekly from September, 2012 - May, 2013.

Tuition fees for our program are set at a rate required to sustain the program and to provide bursaries based on financial need.

We do not provide one-on-one tutoring at this time, which may be more beneficial for some children.

Archimedes Math Schools was recently featured in the articles Lessons from Archimedes and Archimedes Math Schools: Helping Children Succeed in Math.
