Eligibilty

Who is Eligible

The GirlsxMRO program will introduce advanced math topics to young math-talented girls who are eager to learn math that is beyond the school curriculum and scope of math competitions. We would like our students to meet the following criteria:

  • You must be female or nonbinary in gender identity.

  • You must turn 13 by June 20, 2021 and have been enrolled in 7th, 8th or 9th grade last school year (in other words, you are currently a rising 8th, 9th or 10th grader).

  • We require that you have a solid understanding of Algebra I concepts.

    • For live Zoom sessions, there is no limit on space, so there are no additional requirements for math background. These sessions are open to any girls who meet the previous criteria. We encourage you to attend the first math lecture to decide whether the level will work for you.

    • Reading Groups require a more advanced mathematical background, asynchronous time, and active participation as well as have limited space. Thus, each reading group will have its own prerequisites and additional requirements for math background. These are available on the Reading Groups page.

  • Whether or not you have participated in math competitions is NOT important to us. We are looking for girls who are passionate and interested in learning advanced math!

  • To participate, students need a device with internet access and preferably a working camera and microphone. Our program itself is free of charge.

  • You do not have to attend all events. Students can choose to register for as many (or as few) live Zoom session and reading groups as they are interested in participating in.

  • Not sure if you are fit for our program? No worries! You can email us with questions at girlsxmro@gmail.com or fill out the form on the Contact page. In addition, we will explain our program in detail during our Welcome/Overview session at the beginning of the program on 06/27/21.
