In the Fall of 2010, Brainy Groveland began to address math as well as reading. Math contests were held as another way of giving students incentives. These contests did not catch on broadly, so they were discontinued. The links below provide some historical information.

The first contest was held on October 18th, 2010 from 3 to 6 PM at Tenaya school.

"I don't know what's the matter with people: they don't learn by understanding, they learn by some other way by rote or something. Their knowledge is so fragile!" - Feynman

"No human investigation can be called real science if it cannot be demonstrated mathematically. " - Leonardo da Vinci

"Mathematics is the language of size, shape and order and it is an essential part of the equipment of an intelligent citizen to understand this language." - Lancelot Hogben

To those who do not know mathematics it is difficult to get across a real feeling as to the beauty, the deepest beauty, of nature ... If you want to learn about nature, to appreciate nature, it is necessary to understand the language that she speaks in. " - Richard Feynman
