WAITLIST FOR MATH TAUGHT THE RIGHT WAY (MTRW) Fall 2017 Application
To be put on the waitlist and be considered for the program, you must complete this online form and send in a check (instructions for the check come later in this form). Due to the incredibly high volume of applications, we will only consider completed forms and correct checks. Acceptance to the program will be communicated to the families by the beginning of August (or earlier), based on this waitlist an availability in the corresponding group. Sign up on the waitlist only if you are serious and dedicated to participate fully.

MATH TAUGHT THE RIGHT WAY is a math program of the Berkeley Math Circle for middle and high school students at UC Berkeley, held for 3 hours 5-8pm on Thursdays throughout the academic year. The program is intellectually demanding, testing and encouraging the mental development of students in a content-rich and challenging environment of algebra, geometry, and problem solving. The MTRW does NOT conform to generic U.S. labels of math classes (e.g., Algebra 1, Algebra 2, etc.). By the end of 8th grade the MTRW will have surpassed the regular U.S. math curriculum by a lot, not just in breath but more importantly in depth. Learning to "read and write mathematics" is a skill that is emphasized at the MTRW as the basis for communicating mathematics.

The Fall 2017 Math Taught the Right Way:
Start date: August 31, 2017.
End date: December 14, 2017.
An additional final date may be scheduled depending on the room availability. Please note that the early bird fee is valid until July 31, 2017. The full fee will take effect starting August 1, 2017, as specified below.

The instructors at the MTRW have Ph.D., M.A., BA's in math or other related degrees in science, and are distinguished teachers at the Berkeley Math Circle, universities and elite middle and high schools. The MTRW has HWs every week in each of the three subjects. HWs are graded and returned the next week. There are final exams in each subject. Report cards are generated each semester with % of completed regular and bonus work, as well as statistics of the corresponding classes, and a list of top performers and winners in various categories.

The BMC and MTRW staff are on summer break until the end of July 2017, when all enrollment for MTRW F'17 will be finalized. Please, do NOT contact BMC/MTRW staff with routine non-emergency questions at any time. We do NOT have resources to answer questions from hundreds of families on email. Instead, wait until the BMC and MTRW restart in the fall and you can ask us or other families in person.
