MATH CLUB


Glenforest Math Club is a place where students who love math gather to tackle challenging problems and prepare for annual math competitions. Approximately one in every ten students at Glenforest is a part of GFSS Math Club, which totals to over 125 students. 


As a cohesive group, we have ranked as high as 5th in Canada based on total contest scores and are consistently placed amongst the top three schools in the Peel-Halton region. Our math club consisted of numerous members who qualified for the Canadian Math Olympiads (CMO), as well as the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME) and the United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO). 


Throughout the past (2015-2016) year, eleven mathletes were offered scholarships based on their outstanding achievements in math contests. Upon graduation GFSS Math Club alumni have entered various fields, including biomed, nanotechnology, computer science, software engineering, medicine, and physics. 


As a club, we hope to build logical thinking skills through creative problem solving, as well as promote interest by encouraging students to apply their knowledge outside of their classrooms. 


Our goal is to debunk the common misconception that math is dull, and to promote the field of mathematics amongst each generation of high school students.


Our members meet on Wednesdays during lunch & after school to practice contest questions, which cover various branches of mathematics.
